Napa Infant Preschool Program

The Napa Infant Preschool (NIP) program provides a variety of free educational services to children age birth through five years, with suspected developmental delays and conditions which challenge their ability to learn.

Our staff believes in an emphasis on the “whole” child through a family focused approach, parents as active participants in their child’s education, a team approach to the delivery of services, cooperative community networking, and providing environments which address:

  1. How children learn
  2. How families can promote learning
  3. How children make and keep friends
  4. How children become more independent
  5. How children play
  6. How children talk and listen
