Special Needs Childcare

Prevention and Inclusion Programs

Starting Point’s Prevention and Inclusion Programs are dedicated to helping every family find special needs childcare and every child reach his or her potential, regardless of physical or emotional challenges.​

What We Believe

Prevention and Inclusion Programs (PIPS), formerly known as The Special Needs Childcare System, is implemented by Starting Point and funded by Invest in Children. The program supports young children with developmental, health, physical, social-emotional, or behavioral challenges in the classroom. Our team of experts works with child care staff to build a positive classroom environment with individualized support, necessary equipment, and appropriate activities. 
If you live in Cuyahoga County and have a child with these needs, PIPS can help you find a positive child care environment, dedicated teachers, and expert support so your child will thrive.
