The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn, and flourish together. We offer two programs that serve children and adults.
Our NAEYC accredited Child Development Program welcomes all children, regardless of ability, to experience the benefits of inclusion-based learning. At least 30% of the children enrolled at the Frazer Center have a special need or are at-risk for developmental delays. These children benefit from being in a supportive, challenging and stimulating environment with instruction that addresses their individual uniqueness and developmental stages. Their classmates without special needs learn that they can be friends with children who are different. The children who are typically developing also help their friends learn while strengthening their own skills.
Accredited by CARF, our adult day program provides education, work training, and recreation opportunities for adults with disabilities ages 22 and over. We refer to our educational model as SCORE: Skills for Life, Community Experiences, Opportunities/Choices, Real World Experiences, and Equity/Inclusive Environment. The adults at the Frazer Center work on life skills each day, visit the community as much as possible, select learning opportunities of their choosing, and participate in real world experiences in an equal, inclusive setting. SCORE! Adult participants also have the opportunity to work at local businesses and in our Child Development Program as classroom assistants. They are also actively engaged in community activities like volunteering with Project Open Hand, Meals on Wheels, and the Atlanta Hospital Hospitality House.
Additionally, the Cator Woolford Gardens at the Frazer Center functions both as a neighborhood green space and a special events facility. All the money that is generated from rental of the Cator Woolford Gardens is used to help us maintain the gardens for the enjoyment of all and to support the programs that serve children and adults at the Frazer Center.
