Children Services

The Augustin Children’s Center is an accessible, modern, and well-equipped facility. The preschool caters to children with and without disabilities ages three to five, and it offers early intervention services for ages two and under.

The Center boasts many features not offered by other providers such as a warm-water indoor pool, a large gymnasium with a stage, an outdoor exploratory classroom, a large playground with a ‘safe surface,’ and fully integrated classrooms and programs. Offering support and guidance to the entire family, CP Rochester’s Augustin Children’s Center builds a foundation for success in a nurturing environment through quality education and therapeutic services.

Early Intervention

Early Intervention: Services such as special education, speech, social work, and occupational/physical therapy to children with a wide range of disabilities from birth to age three. Parents, teachers, and therapists work together to create individual plans for each child.


Special Education: Our teachers use targeted games, activities, and play techniques to help children engage in the world around them.

Speech Therapy: Therapists use sign language, vocabulary development, and articulation training to help children build communication skills. They also work with children with eating and swallowing difficulties.

Physical Therapy: Allows children to work on muscle strength, coordination, flexibility, and mobility. Our warm water pool (94 degrees) helps children achieve maximum range of motion while building core strength, tone, and balance. Plus, it’s fun!

Occupational Therapy: Helps develop the skills necessary to be successful in fine motor, self-help, and sensory skills. This may include activities such as feeding and dressing, manipulating toys, pre-writing, and being able to take in and respond appropriately to stimuli in the environment.

Home/Community Services: To best support families and understand how children interact with their home environment, therapists, teachers, and parents work as a team providing services at home, daycare, and other community settings.

Family Services: One of the important goals of early intervention is working with the entire family for the benefit of the child. All parents can participate in individual counseling sessions to help manage challenges. A master’s level social worker helps families access other needed community programs and resources.

The Early Intervention Program is funded through New York State and Monroe County for children under the age of three who have an eligible diagnosis or developmental delay. To determine your child’s eligibility, contact the Monroe County Early Intervention Program at 585-753-5437. Eligibility will be determined by a NYS-approved evaluator contracted by Monroe County. If your child is eligible, services will be implemented at no cost to you.
