Children's Program

SCEP CENTRE's regular  program runs from September to June of each year and provides therapeutic group sessions for pre-schoolers. 


SCEP's staff are thoroughly trained in SCEP CENTRE's methods.  These methods are based on the philosophy that children should be helped to become mature citizens, that is, to act confidently, making well-informed decisions with due regard to their own needs and to the rights and needs of others.  This is to be achieved by an emphasis on reciprocal, honest communication between children and adults, and adult models of responsibility, dependability, planning, sincerity and affection.
