Welcome! At the Heritage Education Program, we recognize that all of our students are children first, and we do everything in our power to nurture, facilitate and expand each child’s growth and development in helping him/her reach for the stars! Our staff cultivate strong relationships with our students, and we work diligently to provide the greatest nurturing, learning environment that enriches the lives of the children we support. We see each child as a child first, and we address each child’s needs holistically, including where he/she is developmentally cognitively, physically, and what his/her sensory needs may be. We then immerse him/her into various learning experiences utilizing developmentally appropriate practices in facilitating learning so that each child may reach his/her fullest potential. One of our parents coined the phrase that Heritage Education Program is a place where hearts help minds grow! Our warm, caring staff ensure that children and families feel secure that they are in a school that truly cares about the students and that we strive to provide the highest quality program.

April is National Occupational Therapy Month. At our Maryvale and Green Acres Education Programs we are lucky to have caring, talented, and creative occupational therapists to help our students find their passion, purpose, and potential. Occupational Therapists are an important part of the education team, assisting students to learn skills that help them be successful during their school day. They do this by enhancing the students’ fine motor, visual motor, and sensory skills.
We appreciate our Occupational Therapists all year long but during OT month we like to give an extra thank you. Thank you to our amazing OTs: Lindsay, Ashley, Amanda, Lisa, Kristen, Kelly, Aimee, Ginny, Crystal, Eliza, Bob, Helen, and Angela! We appreciate your dedication and hard work to enhance our students lives

We are so thankful for all of our therapists in the The Arc Erie County Preschool and School Age Program. Thank you for helping our students to develop the skills they need for school and their every day lives.

The Arc would like to dedicate the week of February 7th through 13th to the
Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and
Speech Therapists who make our agency incredible. Our therapists are made of
patience, understanding, good humor, hard work and diligence. They selflessly
devote their days to helping improve other people’s lives and always provide
invaluable, irreplaceable support. The efforts they put forth can mean all the
difference in the world for improving the health and happiness of the
individuals they work with. It is our deepest honor to celebrate and recognize
each and every Therapist at The Arc Erie County, and encourage all other staff members to extend their appreciation from the bottom of our hearts: Thank you Therapist Staff.

October is National Physical Therapy Month. At The Arc Education Program we are lucky to have caring, talented, and creative physical therapists to help our students achieve their highest potential. Physical Therapists are an important part of the education team, assisting students to navigate their school, participate in activities with their peers, and be as independent as possible. They do this by making exercise fun, so kids are excited to gain strength, balance, and coordination.

We appreciate our Physical Therapists all year long but feel free to give an extra thank you during Physical Therapy Month. Thank you to our awesome PTs: Charlene, Kahla, Katie, Brittney, Lindsay, Sarah, Serena, Lisa, and Shannon! We appreciate your dedication and hard work for our students.

For mani's music lesson we do kids worship songs and we add the beats with what we have.the words that they use are uplifting freeing her soul.i don't let her listen to music that keeps her down.like humpty dumpty.she doesn't listen to it because it is teaching kids that if you are broken or you have things happen you will stay broken.in that song they say humpty dumpty can't be put back together.and her christain music teach's her when the world or people in the world hurt you GOD can put you back together.
Mani uses this for math.she likes it.
Mani, use's the top part of this to say her name.then we sign her name afterwards.
