ALL INCLUSIVE DAY PROGRAM
At Emma's Education Center, because learning takes place all day, we don't separate our core program from our enrichment program. It's all included!
We are open Monday - Friday from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM and the tuition covers all hours. We are HCS, CLASS Pre-Vocational and TxHmL authorized and payment from these sources covers our all day program completely!
Core curriculum is featured from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM which also includes rotational "outclasses" in Music, PE, Anatomy, Art and Home Economics!
Some of the other things included in our all day inclusive program are: continental breakfast, hot lunch, and snack daily--screened by our nutrition consultant; Learning library which includes the use of an android tablet; Community Based Instruction (CBI) field trips twice per month; Special events like our Thanksgiving and Christmas (with Santa) lunches, Spring Formal and a 3 day away-from-home camp trip!
We are open year round with the exception of two break weeks and have speech, physical and occupational therapy available for those who qualify. Nursing consultant on board for safety and health!
