Granite Wellness Centers began our child development program to reduce barriers to accessing treatment for parents by providing safe, onsite care for their children. However, we quickly realized that we had a very important opportunity to intervene and support the development of young children who have experienced inconsistent parenting, at best, and in many cases trauma, neglect, and abuse. Our child development program is designed to support young children whose parent or parents (usually a single mother) are in treatment for a substance use disorder.
The child development program provides quality care and a nurturing, safe and loving environment for young children. Little ones in our program find security (they have often lacked), nurturing, and fun. For children ages 7-12, Granite Wellness Programs offer educational support groups to help them to understand addiction and how to make healthier choices for themselves. This program provides lessons on developing life and coping skills, in a fun and entertaining way appropriate for young children. They will learn to ask for help while also giving and receiving support for one another. Child development programs utilize Ages and Stages Questionnaires, an evidence-based assessment to ensure age-appropriate development. GWC provides programming at our Grass Valley, Auburn, and Roseville campuses.
The program also provides opportunities for parents to engage with their children, and learn developmentally appropriate practices. Educated and experienced staff ensure that parents can see firsthand how important a safe, stable environment is for the growth and development of their children.
