Find the perfect caregiver for your ongoing, after-school, part-time or occasional care needs


We understand that our children thrive when we understand them deeply and use that understanding to develop strong, connected relationships with them. These relationships are central to true companionship and care, defusing the challenges that arise, harvesting joy and learning from daily activities. Imagine having a childcare provider who knows how to respond to sensory-related struggles, language delays, non-verbal communication, atypical behaviors, repetitive movements, and challenging tantrums. Imagine childcare that is integrated with a support system for you by people who deeply understand the joys and challenges we all face as parents of special children.

Our Care Specialists are extensively screened, certified in CPR and First Aid and trained to provide you with reliable, engaging childcare, whether it's on an as-needed basis or for regular employment. As parents of special needs children ourselves, we feel confident that we can help you find a caregiver that matches well with your family.
