Our mission is to educate, nurture and support children with special needs to reach their highest potential intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
Every child deserves the chance to realize their fullest potential in life. While others may focus on the challenges of the children we serve, we see possibilities. Possibilities for confidence, happiness, achievement and self-reliance. For more than 65 years, The Centers for Exceptional Children has been providing a critical combination of support services, programs and facilities dedicated to one thing: helping children with special needs and their families thrive.

The Centers for Exceptional Children’s Schools
The CFEC encompasses two campuses: The Special Children’s School and The Children’s Center, each having a slightly different focus in serving children. The Children’s Center has predominantly served children with physical disabilities and/or significant medical issues. The Special Children’s School has focused its efforts on children with a wide range of developmental delays. In addition to preschool and school-age programs, The Children’s Center houses an Infant & Toddler Program which serves children from birth through age two.
