This center will not discriminate against a child with a handicapping condition solely on the basis of the handicap. This center serves children with special needs and handicapping conditions whenever possible. Careful evaluation of the child’s needs and the center’s capabilities will be made. The center must be able to meet the physical, emotional, mental and social development needs of the child without jeopardizing the same opportunity for other children. It must also be able to provide a program that would be participatory, beneficial and safe for this child as well as the other enrolled children. If this is deemed possible, any eligible applicant with special needs or handicapping conditions will be enrolled. If, however, this is not deemed possible, the center will communicate such and offer assistance, as needed, in identifying other settings/services that could be more appropriate.
