Celebrating a Common Goal
Blind Children's Learning Center's Early Childhood Center students celebrated the 4th of July by participating in our annual Bike Parade. To get into the holiday spirit the children recited the Pledge of Allegiance and pedaled around on decorated bicycles, wagons, strollers, scooters and two Lightning McQueen Power Wheel cars (donated by Disneyland Resorts) to honor the "Birthday of America".
Our students know that the Fourth of July is not just a day to listen to crackling fireworks, but a day to recognize the importance of independence. We wish to empower each of our children with the tools they need to gain independence. Teaching our students to travel freely through Orientation and Mobility training, reinforcing Braille Literacy, and supporting strong social skills through our Youth Outreach Program gives our kids the ability to accomplish their goals.

Learn How Your Child Could Be a Sighted Peer
Currently we have limited openings for your children to have the incredible experience of being a "sighted peer." Your child age 3 - 5 could join our Pre-K or Kindergarten classes to experience field trips, onsite events, music and a sensory-based curriculum. Our sighted peers learn empathy, compassion and leadership skills. Fees include morning daycare (beginning at 7:30am) and after school daycare (ending at 6pm).
Classes begin on September 3.
