BUTTERFLY LEARNING CENTER
The UCP Butterfly Learning Center is committed to providing quality inclusive preschool services for children of all abilities. Children learn best and become more adept through play-based interaction with children of differing abilities, cultures, and backgrounds.
For more than 25 years, BLC has provided therapeutic services that include OT, PT and ST Therapy Services. We provide treatments for sensory integration, language, pragmatics, auditory processing, speech, oral motor, feeding, swallowing, daily living, strength, range of motion, flexibility, balance, posture, body mechanics, coordination, and endurance.
Structured preschool classes are scheduled between 7:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., and Before/After care is available between 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. The preschool is open year-round, five days a week, with the exception of scheduled holidays.
Butterfly Learning center accepts Medicaid and daycare vouchers. BLC is licensed by the Division of Childcare and Early Childhood Education and by DDS (Developmental Disability Services) to provide programming for children of all abilities.

Therapy is provided as an on-site program for children and adults to maximize each individual’s highest potential. Evaluations are conducted with the referral from a primary physician, and we develop individualized plans to address specific client needs. Occupation, physical, and speech-language therapists are licensed and highly trained to provide one-on-one services to qualifying individuals and their families.
Occupational therapy (OT) assists people to function as effectively as possible in their everyday environments. Therapists work to improve sensory integration, fine and visual motor development, social interaction, and self-help deficits, which could affect learning and daily independent living skills. Therapists are also skilled in hand splinting and the Snoezelen Treatment Approach.
Physical therapy (PT) treats individuals with motor, neuromuscular, and vestibular delays. Therapists provide treatment involving neuro-development therapy, e-stim and muscle reeducation, coordination/balance training, play-based therapeutic exercise, functional movement activities, and gait training. They also assist in obtaining orthotic casting and adaptive equipment (wheelchairs, walkers, positioning systems, seats, etc.). Our therapists are educated on Botox injections and Baclofen pump protocols.
Speech-language Pathology (SLP) works to improve a person’s ability to communicate in their environment. Therapy addresses the improvement of speech sound production, reading, aural rehabilitation, understanding and expressing language to communicate and learn, and oral motor strategies to improve swallowing/feeding deficits. SLP also evaluates and trains clients to use alternative communication systems if needed.
