Brighter Beginnings Program

Brighter Beginnings is an intensive Early Intervention Program specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of each child between the ages of 2 1/2 to 5 1/2 years who may have a severe and/or moderate delay in one or more developmental areas, such as speech and language, fine and gross motor, or a medical condition.

Brighter Beginnings at Madonna offers a rich literacy, communication and numeracy experience for children with loving, experienced educators and consultants.
