EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
I am running in the 2012 Boston Marathon to raise funds for Bay Cove’s Child and Family Services, which include:
Early Intervention: The Bay Cove Early Intervention (EI) program serves more than four hundred children under three years of age, who are developmentally delayed, have a known disabling condition, or who are at risk of developmental delays due to biological or environmental factors.
The program’s goal is to promote the physical, mental and emotional development of eligible children. Services are provided in the children’s homes, in the community and at the program site on Victory Road. Bay Coves EI program has been providing such services to children and their families for the past twenty years.
Small Wonders Nursery School: The Small Wonders Nursery School provides exceptionally high quality early childhood education for children from Dorchester and surrounding communities. Located on the first floor of the Daniel C. Boynton Child Development Center, the nursery school benefits from a state-of-the-art facility and the services of highly skilled professional caregivers. The thoughtful design of the physical space and the low ratio of children to staff (one staff member for every three children) contribute to the excellence of the Small Wonders program.
Bay Cove Academy: Bay Cove Academy is a small, therapeutic day school located in Brookline, Massachusetts serving adolescents, ages 12-21, from the Greater Boston area. Approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education and nationally recognized by the US Department of Labor for its Career Development Program, the school provides a highly structured, learning environment for teens whose educational and social needs exceed those which traditional public and private schools can accommodate.
