More than a social group

We’re excited to offer the Clubhouse Connections Academy, a partial-day program where your child can grow in a social therapeutic setting suited to their needs.

We designed the E.D.G.E. pod around play-based practices to give your child that extra boost they need to reach their potential.

Coming soon – Our Navigators pod utilizes the DIR®/Floortime™ principles to best help children with autism or other similar challenges.
