The Bell Center for Early Intervention Programs offers therapeutic services to children ages zero to three who are at risk for developmental delay. The program, located in Homewood, is presently serving 100 children in seven different therapeutic programs including Bright Beginnings, Little Leaps, All about Me, Explore Every Day, Munch Bunch and My Friends.
Volunteers at The Bell Center provide one-to-one assistance to children being served in our toddler programs called All About Me. This two hour program operates very much like a typical preschool classroom. Children participate in circle time, snack time, art activities and music activities. The classroom is lead by a team of professionals including an early childhood special educator, speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist and physical therapist. The classroom schedule and activities are therapeutic in design and promote growth and learning. However, children participating in the program are simply having fun participating in a preschool environment.
Volunteers at The Bell Center commit to working with a child for 2 hours once a week. Each volunteer participates in a brief training session held on the first Thursday of each month at 10:00 am, before starting. The experience of volunteering at The Bell Center is both meaningful and rewarding and our volunteers are vital to the success of our program.
We are currently taking applications from people who are interested in volunteering for our programs. Thanks very much for your interest in working with the children of The Bell Center.
