The CLIMB Center provides support to strengthen families and improve the emotional, behavioral, and academic wellbeing of children and adolescents in our community. Children are referred to CLIMB due to an inability to maintain  in a regular preschool  or  public school  environment.  Children referred to CLIMB may be experiencing  behavioral challenges, emotional instability, or difficulty with overall social functioning. Such struggles can hinder academic performance and create a cycle of office referrals, suspensions, inpatient hospital placements, and eventually  expulsion.  Our mission  is to treat these areas and successfully transition them back to their public school environments so they can go on to reach their academic goals.


CLIMB is open all year, Monday-Friday, from  7:30 am- 3:30 pm. Daily activities include academic support, group therapy, individual therapy, breakfast/lunch/snack times,  and indoor/outdoor recreational activities to improve health and social functioning. CLIMB also offers psychiatric services, medication management, family therapy, and parenting education.


CLIMB accepts from Pre-K to 4th grade.  Children are typically referred to CLIMB by teachers, counselors, juvenile court officers, outpatient and inpatient mental health staff, and primary care doctors. If you would like more information about CLIMB , please contact our director, Terri Petty, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 7:30 am – 3:30 pm by phone or email at: 501-620-5279 or
