Seriously emotionally disturbed children ages 3 – 5 who have had multiple foster care placements, have experienced or witnessed violence in the home or community, or have been traumatized by some events receive mental health services. They are in the program because they cannot cope in a traditional preschool setting. The goal of this program is to help prepare them to go to kindergarten. *6 month commitment
