Tipton Adaptive Daycare is an inclusive childcare center for all children. We offer care for children with special medical needs or disabilities in an integrated environment with their non-disabled peers. We also provide services for children with behavioral or psychological needs. Children that require a 1:1 caregiver can fund this service through Medicaid Waivers so that that can safely participate in a group setting. Though the daycare is considered a special needs daycare, the majority of children that attend the daycare do not have special needs.

Tipton Adaptive Daycare is an Equal Opportunity Provider & Employer.

At Tipton Adaptive Daycare, we believe that children learn best through play, so there are generous amounts of both indoor and outdoor free-play time. We focus our activities and routine interactions to help develop the skills needed for school readiness, including communication skills, social skills, self-help skills, pre-academic skills, impulse-control, self-regulation, problem solving, attention span, and the independence of the children.
