We were just one little family with a child who was different, climbing this huge mountain of medical complexity and feeling lost, scared, and alone. And then, thank goodness, we discovered The Children's Institute.
The Day School provides a warm and caring environment structured around high standards and accountability that is customized to meet the needs of each student. They also include the needs of our whole family in Harry's educational care.

The Children’s Institute welcomes new students throughout the school year. Our ability to provide expert educational services to students with a wide variety of needs makes our programs as unique as the students we serve.

Many families discuss the possibility of an out-of-district placement with their school district first, then connect with our team and schedule a tour. While school district referrals are most common, we welcome medical professionals, related service providers, parents, and caregivers to inquire about our programs.
Our incredible enrollment coordinator is knowledgeable about all our educational service offerings and will lead both parents and school districts through the enrollment process every step of the way. From the time we receive a call or email, to scheduling a tour, to making sure the student and family feel welcome on day one – we’re here for you.
