Combination Program

The combination model provides two 4-hour classroom experiences each week, plus two 1½-hour home visit each month and a minimum of two family events each month.

SUMCD provides transportation for children to and from the two EHS combination model classrooms, which are located in Middleburg, Mifflinburg, and Lewistown.

Our curriculum is based on an individualized, play-based approach to the growth and development of infants and toddlers. Successful parent-child interactions, those that are positive, guiding, and nurturing, are rooted in the parents’ understanding of typical infant and toddler development and their own child’s development. Infants and toddlers learn best when learning activities are incorporated into the child’s play and daily activities. Activities in home visits and the combination classrooms are guided by individual child developmental progress, child interests, and parent-identified learning opportunities.
