Program Unit Funded Initiative (PUF) focuses on developing extensive early childhood readiness skills. It is designed for children aged between 2 years, 8 months and 4 years, 7 months as of September 1st who have a diagnosed need in one or more areas.
The program focuses on developing communication, social, physical and emotional skills. Specific programming is tailored to the individual needs of the child.

PUF students are fully included in local Pre-Kindergarten Programs. They can also participate in special events and a gym and swim program.
