Welcome to Social Stars Learning Center! We are a preschool program designed to focus on social and emotion skills within the classroom setting. Our mission is to help each child learn the skills necessary to be successful while providing early mental health intervention services. We have a strong group of Teachers and a Treatment Team that believes in the importance of having a caring, compassionate, and safe environment for your child to learn the skills they may need before starting kindergarten.

2. A SCMHCC representative will reach out to schedule a intake at the Andover, Augusta, or El Dorado clinic. During the intake, your therapist and you will discuss the Social Stars program and if it would be a therapeutic fit for your child.
If referred , you will be contacted by a Social Stars Director or Assistant Director for an initial parent meeting.
3. During the Initial Parent Meeting we will discuss the program in detail and we will asses if the child is cognitively, academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally ready for the program. Paperwork will be completed for the child’s chart to ensure a quick start date, this will include reviewing parent handbook, KDHE packet and SCMHCC required paperwork.
At the Initial Parent Meeting please bring
A copy of your child’s current Health Physical, and
(Please refer to your PCP to ensure your child is up to date on all immunizations.)
Any paper work from community partners (Early childhood, Rainbows, Psychological testing, CDDO, etc.)
Once all paperwork is complete you will discuss with the Director or Assistant Director a start date and schedule a Individualized Service Plan your child's first day of school. (Therapist, Director, Assistant Director, Teacher Etc..) This will help discuss any information that may have been missed and help all members of your child's team understand the goals you wish for your child.
* Your child’s treatment team will meet at least every 90 days to asses their current strengths and needs and progress towards treatment plan goals. If at any point your child is struggling within the program, a treatment plan review can be scheduled to determine more appropriate services for your child.
