CLC is the only Professional Educational Child Psychology based Preschool in Egypt. A very significant asset of CLC is that we take great pride in is the psychological well-being of children. This is done in a number of ways, one of which is conducting periodical teachers training and parenting workshops under the guidance of Dr. Mona Youssri (Child Psychiatrist, Family Counselor and CLC Founder). In addition to such trainings, a department of resident psychologists and behavior coaches is available at all times, welcoming newcomers, easing their start with us "New Comers Strategy" where we follow a strict child psychology based strategy with new comers. This strategy implies a short visits system where the child starts coming to CLC for short visits with the parent. Under the supervision of the class psychologist, the short visit time is gradually extended followed by a gradual separation of the child from the parent. The process is a gradual monitored separation of the child from the parent to ensure the child’s psychological well-being during the child’s transfer from home to the nursery or from another nursery to CLC.
More Child-Psychology related services available at CLC are; dealing with specific behavioral issues that might appear in some children as well as providing child counseling to parents and teachers whenever needed, parenting workshops, play therapy and play assessments, early intervention, speech therapy, family and child counseling, observations, behavior reports and behavior modification.
A main task of the psychologists at CLC is doing continuous observations of the children during their stay in CLC. The objective of the observations is noticing any behavioral or developmental child problems in addition to making sure that the teachers are following CLC’s system appropriately.
- Behavior Reports
CLC’s Psychology department readily provides professional observations based child’s behavior report whenever asked for with the help of the class teachers.
- Behavior Modification
The psychology department at CLC has shown continuous success in detecting, handling and correcting behavioral problems noticed in preschool and school age children. This is done with the help of a team of behavior coaches under the supervision of a Head of behavior coaches. The methods used in CLC have succeeded in modifying the behavior of many children before going to school thus protecting these children from lifelong labeling and psychological abuse.
- Early Intervention
CLC’s Psychology Department has successfully achieved remarkable results by early intervention with children suffering from several degrees of autism, Down’s syndrome, ADHD and others. Many of these children were able to join normal schools after their graduation from CLC.
