I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to any special needs preschools in the Richmond area. I am looking to move to Richmond but haven't pinpointed a location due to my daughter's disability. I want to weigh out all the benefits of the surrounding areas. She will be 2 in January and I am looking to have her enrolled the following sept. Any advice on the best locations along with any special services in the area would also be helpful.

Thanks

You should check out the Faison School, but it's hard to say without knowing your child's disability.

Yes there are several schools and programs in richmond 1 that is really good is called Safe Haven, not sure of the ages they offer several different programs. Its located on turner road, elkhardt, and midlothian the people that run the proogram is excellent educators, if they can not assisst you because of the age ask them to refer someone who can. Another program is called Camp Baker. Still not sure about the ages.

Well, it depends on the disability....Northstar Academy, Faison, are the ones I know by name but there is one in the Mechanicsville area and another small school over near Gaskins Road in the far West End of Richmond...

I would strongly advise against you looking in the city of Richmond for programs...the city has been sued for not offering proper playground equipment, lack of supervision,etc for disabled children...

Chesterfield has some good county programs...

Good luck to you!

I appreciate the help so far. My daughter is almost 2 but developmentally tests out at a 4-6 month level. She is completely dependant. My fear is sending her somewhere where A: she will put stuck in a corner or B: be placed with typical children and her needs will not be met. I have spoken with Richmond City and Henrico County Infant & Toddler Connection but no one has really given me a lot of advice as to facilities for placement. I may be looking at continuing to stay at home with her fulltime. In that case I would like to be in an area that is easily accessible and also safe.
