Mission Statement
To foster learning and development in young children through excellence in early education and partnerships with staff, families, and community members. There are 19 Regional Early Childhood Centers (RECC) in Howard County.

We envision Early Intervention Services that reflect our core values of focus on instruction, partnerships, and continuous improvement.
  • Family members and professionals collaborate in the evaluation and intervention process to develop personalized programs for young children.
  • Personalized programs for children address each child's unique strengths and needs, include involvement in early childhood curriculum, reflect the sound principles of child development and intervention, and result in children being active learners in real life.
  • Children with disabilities and typically developing peers learn together and develop friendships.  
  • Family members participate in education and support activities.
  • All service providers collaborate for continuous program improvement and HAVE FUN!

The Pointers Run Elementary School RECC serves children from age 2.5-4.5 years old in the following programs:

  • 1 Multiple Intensity Needs Class-First Learner (MINC-FL) classroom for 2.5 to 4.5 year old children with disabilities and typically developing peers.
