Rise can help!
Parenting is both rewarding and challenging. All parents need the support of others to gain perspective, to share resources, and to develop strategies. Contact Rise today to see how we can support you!
Rise for baby and family has been providing supports and services to infants and toddlers and their families in the Monadnock region since 1981. Rise serves over 250 children birth to three annually with early intervention and child care programs.
Parents Know Their Child Best
When parents have concerns about their infant or toddler’s development, the impact of a premature birth, speech delay, suspected autism or any other concern large or small, Rise is available to help. We strive to develop a partnership with families; to combine the expertise of parents with that of professionals to create a team that will provide the best possible intervention.
Rise serves over 250 infants and toddlers annually providing early supports and services and child care that includes children with special needs and their typically developing peers. We work closely with parents to build on their strengths in order to achieve the best possible outcome for their child.
Early Intervention Services
(Family Centered Early Supports and Services)
Rise has a highly qualified staff with extensive experience with infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age. We can help answer parents’ questions about their child’s development and provide supports and services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of the child and family. Highly qualified staff members include pediatric physical and occupational therapists and speech pathologists as well as early childhood specialists and social workers. There is no cost to families.
Rise provides high quality child care in a small group setting for children 4 months to three-and-a-half years. We include children with special needs with their typically developing peers in a warm and nurturing environment where all children are appreciated.
Thank you to our Donors!
With the support of many donors, Rise for baby and family was able to build a new play yard for the children and families who receive services through Rise. The multi-sensory play yard is used for children to engage with nature, practice many developmental skills, and to have fun! On Saturday, September 22, 2018, during Rise’s annual Toddler Fest event, an acknowledgement plaque for our donors was erected. Thank you to all who donated; we here at Rise are appreciative of all our friends. Additionally, because of Toni Ellsworth’s dedication and service to Rise and children and families throughout the Monadnock region during her 37-year tenure at Rise, the Play Yard will officially be called the Toni Ellsworth Play Yard in her honor. While the final plaque is not completed, a mock-up is pictured below.
