When & Where
The Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development
The Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is recognized world-wide as a unique and indispensable contributor to the healthy emotional development of children and families throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond.
We are founded on the understanding that a young child's behavior is a form of communication, and that young children are whole people, not merely silent observers of the world around them.
Our Mission: Early childhood experiences shape a person’s entire life.
To foster the emotional well-being of children and their families and to help them master life’s challenges, the Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development promotes positive early learning experiences through educational and therapeutic services for children and parents; training and support for professionals and community-wide collaborations.
The HP Way: People who know Hanna Perkins describe an approach to helping children and families that is gentle and effective. Part of our culture since 1951, it is often referred to as The HP Way. It means:
1. We see each child as a complete person.
2. We understand behavior as a form of communication.
3. We give voice to feelings and thoughts.
4. We take time.
5. We provide help.
6. We involve family.
