CCsignChildren’s Center:

Early Intervention and Family Support

The Children’s Center Early Intervention and Family Support is a specialized provider of services in central Maine for young children with developmental delays and disabilities such as pervasive developmental disorder, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, and more.   We provide a continuum of center-based therapies and care for young children with disabilities that is simply not offered in this same format anywhere else in the region.   The Children's Center has been providing services for children with special needs and their families since 1966. 

The Center’s primary facility operates in Augusta, Maine, and provides early intervention and pediatric therapies (speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and mental health services) in an inclusive, learning-rich child care environment, to children from six weeks to six years of age.  Our targeted case management, community-based behavioral health professionals, and parent and provider education programs serve families of children with special needs (through age 12) in Kennebec and Somerset Counties. We have a satellite office in Skowhegan providing multiple family services, and we provide services (BHP, TCM) and programs (a Relatives as Parents Program, the “Grandest Parents”) in Waterville, as well. 

The Children's Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.




Our Vision

The Children's Center's vision is a world where communities, families and caregivers join together to create nurturing environments in which all children are embraced as unique and valued individuals.

Our Mission

The mission of the Children's Center is to meet the needs of all children by offering quality programs that encourage individual growth, provide support for their families, and promote inclusion of all children in the community.

Our Philosophy

We believe that children are unique individuals who learn best through creative play.  We believe that children thrive when given the opportunity to develop social, emotional, and physical skills within an environment that provides peer interactions, nurturing adults, and developmentally appropriate materials.  We believe that family members are the most important people in a child's life. We believe that families are entitled to help and support in identifying their options and resources in accordance with their lifestyles and personal values. We believe that families, professional staff, and the community can work together to support children as they grow.
