Other Programs & Services
Off-Site Day Treatment Programs
Through local collaboration, Tennyson Center for Children is the managing partner in community-based day treatment programs. They are based in public school buildings and provide a self-contained, licensed day treatment program. These programs provide a highly therapeutic setting with the benefit of being in a public school environment. The Tennyson Center in Littleton is located in Hopkins Elementary School and accepts elementary students from the metro area.
Public School Support Program (PSSP)
As part of the Tennyson Center for Children continuum, the Public School Support Program provides school-based intervention services to assist children, families, and schools. These services can be used to help prevent out-of-district placements, to assist children transitioning from alternative placements back into their home schools, or for intensive behavioral support for students. PSSP workers also focus on helping families build positive connections with their child’s teachers and school. PSSP services are available for all school-aged children and are completely individualized based on the needs of the child, family, and school.
Challenge by Choice focuses on creating an experiential education environment outside the classroom. Children have the opportunity to participate in a summer journey that helps them reach their highest potential. Helping abused children overcome poor self-esteem, low self-confidence, the inability to build appropriate social relationships, and poor sportsmanship is paramount to the healing process. The Challenge by Choice adventure-based program provides new and different experiences while incorporating traditional wilderness education including canoeing, rafting, camping, service projects and hiking, including ascending Colorado’s tallest mountain Mt. Elbert.
Summer Fun & Growth Program provides multiple opportunities for children to gain appropriate and respectful social skills while experiencing various activities in the community. Activities include arts and crafts, compute skills, reading, sports, games and miscellaneous indoor and outdoor projects. Children participate in a variety of on-campus and off-campus activities for fun community integrative learning experiences.
