Easter Seals’ Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Child Development Center is located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington DC. The most venerable of Easter Seals Serving DC/MD/VA's 19 locations, the Center has been serving children and families in the community since 1959. The Center provides high quality inclusive programs including full-day childcare, early intervention and education, and parent support to a diverse population of children and families. The Center serves children with and without disabilities from six weeks to four years of age with the goal of maximizing the physical, cognitive, communication, self-help, and social/emotional development of each child and ensuring a successful transition into school. The special needs of children served include Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, speech /language delay, developmental delay and extreme prematurity among others. Easter Seals provides these children with a variety of early intervention services including physical, occupational, speech/ language and cognitive therapy in the classroom setting. In addition to benefitting from therapy services in their natural environment, the children with special needs also benefit from daily interaction with their typically- developing peers. The typically-developing children benefit from having a heightened sensitivity to the challenges that others face, increased empathy and compassion. Families benefit from having high-quality childcare located in the community and also the convenience of having childcare and therapy provided in the same location. All age groups follow monthly curriculum themes and weekly plans. We follow an inclusive model in which classes are a combination of children with and without special needs and therapy is incorporated into the classroom. Teachers provide parents with daily written reports of their child’s activities. For children receiving therapy, therapists provide a written progress note outlining each therapy session. Our lead classroom teachers have, at a minimum, a Child Development Associate (CDA) certificate and all of our therapists are certified and licensed. We have 7 childcare classes and 1 Pre-K Incentive class (for 3 year olds) and have capacity for 96 children. Almost half of our children receive at least one therapy. We accept full & partial vouchers (issued on-site) and private pay for childcare. We accept Medicaid, Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (such as HSCSN, Trusted, Medstar), DC Early Intervention, and self-pay to cover therapy costs. We are located in Ward 1 in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington DC at the intersection of Girard and 13th Streets, NW. We are 4 blocks from the Columbia Heights metro (Green/Yellow Lines). We have a parking lot that is accessed by Girard St NW. We are open Monday – Friday from 7am to 6pm year round and provide breakfast, lunch and snack (with vegetarian options available).

Mission: Easter Seals provides exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

#TipTuesday First words are always exciting, but a child’s first combination of two different words is just as important. In fact, research shows that children who are late to combine words are more at risk for future problems with language than children who were late with their first words. Discover when your child should start putting words together, what to do if you suspect a delay, and how you can help them to start making combinations.
