Guiliana Is A Shining STAR!

The childhood I had envisioned for my daughter, Giuliana changed drastically when she was diagnosed with Autism in 2009. As an only child with a pronounced speech and language delay, I was encouraged to look into placing her in an environment where she could be amongst her peers, learn by example and receive services. Having only lived in Pennsylvania a bit shy of two years, I still considered myself new to the area but began to research locally. I was referred to the Beach Lake Free Methodist Church Child Care Center, a Keystone STARS Facility. From the very first meeting with the Director and teachers, I have felt the utmost confidence with our choice of placement.

The Center is home to a very nurturing staff and encourages learning and development for all children. The roles of the teachers and the Director have been instrumental in Giuliana's progress by maintaining a supportive relationship with me, the parent, a sincere interest in learning, accommodating any information concerning her needs as a child with a developmental disorder and working with therapeutic staff support while adhering to any modifications or goals recommended for Giuliana. Most of all, they are wonderfully caring, genuinely concerned and engage Giuliana as they would any other child.

The current director, Stacey Freet, has assisted on occasion in regard to our therapeutic support. I believe Stacey's input was pivotal. Jenna Gaudio is a new and enthusiastic teacher eager to learn how to involve Giuliana with the class and manage behaviors or any issues of concern.

Academically speaking, the curriculum in place at the Center is nicely varied and Giuliana has learned a great deal from school. There has been a bit a progress in the area of communication, she can write her full name, identify colors and shapes, spell and recognize words. Giuliana is continually encouraged to model and is learning amongst her peers. I know she enjoys being at the Beach Lake Free Methodist Child Care Center.
Guiliana was nominated by Patricia Jennings of Wayne County's 3-5 Early Intervention Program.
