St. Louis Arc’s Early Childhood programs address the needs of each child from birth to age 6.

Every child develops at their own pace. However, child development typically occurs in stages for the majority of children.  If a child misses a step, it can weaken the foundation for their development of higher level skills. Our approach helps children develop higher skill sets for future learning and growth in their life.
