Many Stars Can Be Found at Celebrate the Children!
Joy and laughter are central to our developmental approach to education and all of our important work.
Celebrate the Children is a non-profit, state-approved school, which serves over 160 students ages 3-21 with autism and other challenges in relating and communicating in New Jersey.
We are dedicated to advancing the development of all children, adolescents and adults with autism and special needs. Our mission is to provide our students with a solid foundation of learning while supporting their physical, mental, social, and emotional development.
Our ultimate goal is for our students to live meaningful lives. On a daily basis we observe our students increasing in independence and executive functioning, social, emotional and intellectual capacities. They are developing strong relationships, are humorous, and breaking the stereotypes of autism.
We take pride in encouraging students to be happy, secure, social, and creative individuals while celebrating each of the unique qualities that define who they are.
Our students would be honored to meet you.
Years ago, students very much enjoyed creating, developing, and producing WCTC News Spoof (WCTC News) as well as participating in Grammy Nominated Children’s Music Artist, Brady Rymer’s, (formerly of FROM GOOD HOMES) music video for Love Me For Who I Am (Music Video) and the Backstory (Backstory). Our students LOVE the spotlight and not only do we want to share them with the world, but they have a message to send as well.
Celebrate the Children is the only school of its kind in New Jersey, and one of few schools in the entire country, to offer the Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based Intervention approach developed by Drs. Stanley Greenspan and Serena Wieder. Families travel from across the country and abroad to attend the school because of its innovative programs, well-trained staff, and love and care showered on all students.
We hope that you will consider visiting us here at Celebrate the Children!
Thank you in advance for your support and consideration!
