In the community and classroom, PEP Early Childhood Plus equips professionals, families and caregivers with knowledge and skills that ensure young children grow and thrive.
The development of social-emotional skills in young children is an early predictor of success in school and life. For decades, PEP’s early childhood consultants and trainers have helped teachers, caregivers, social workers, parents and mental health professionals support children with social, emotional, behavioral or developmental challenges.
PEP Early Childhood Plus touches nearly 1,000 children each year through its programming.
PEP builds skills and competencies in the adults who care for, teach and nurture young children.
PEP Early Childhood Plus helps children with severe behavioral or developmental challenges by empowering the most critical individuals in their lives – family, teachers, child care professionals – with the skills, strategies and community resources necessary to foster growth. Collaboration among a child’s entire support system anchors much of PEP consultants’ work – the core of which is advocating for what’s in the best interest of the child.
Starting with the belief that all children and their caregivers have strengths that can be built upon, PEP models and teaches skills that support the child at home and in the classroom. Should more intensive intervention be required, PEP consultants connect child care settings and families to appropriate education and community mental health services and will assist with care coordination.

“When we have children having a difficult time in the classroom – either with speech, hearing or something behaviorally – PEP is our first call. We’ve been over-the-moon happy with the results.”
