Caring for children with special needs.

Since 1968, St. Francis Children's Center has been a leader in providing services to children with special needs. SFCC also provides unparalleled education and care to children without disabilities, thus creating an environment rich in the joys of learning for young children of all abilities.

The SFCC staff is highly educated and trained to work specifically with young children, and the spacious building and playgrounds are a child's dream come true.

In addition to working with children in the SFCC building, the staff travels to children's homes and other community settings to work with children in their own natural environment.
