AUGUSTA – Children’s Center, an early childhood intervention and family support service organization for children with special needs, graduated 28 children from its programs at the end of August. The children graduated from four children’s centers in Augusta, Waterville, Skowhegan and Farmington.
“Seeing the growth and development of these children between their first day with us and graduation is one of the most rewarding things I can imagine,” said Jeff Johnson, Executive Director of the Children’s Center. “Thanks to the work done by the staff at the Children’s Center, there are now over two dozen children with special needs who are as prepared as possible to take the next step to continue their education. The emotion and pride on the faces of these children and their families is real, heartwarming and something that continues to inspire us every year. ”
