Canvas Health Collaborates with District 916 on Early Childhood Program

In collaboration with Northeast Metro 916 Intermediate School District, Canvas Health is excited to announce Sunflower Learning Center, an early childhood program that serves students ages 3-5 who are struggling to be successful in their current preschool or childcare setting due to their mental health symptoms and behaviors.

Co-Regulate Emotions and Behaviors

Early childhood therapists empower students with the skills they need to co-regulate emotions and behaviors; and find success in school, at home and in their communities.

The program operates with the belief that early intervention helps students learn in their neighborhood schools among their peers for the vast majority of their school careers.

Students and families experience an innovative school program where they:

  • Experience both early childhood educational instruction and mental health treatment in an integrated/shared manner.
  • Attend family therapy in the school, at a Canvas Health location, or in the home setting during the day or evening hours that encourages lasting positive change.
  • Receive assistance in navigating a sometimes confusing array of school and community-based services.
