EduCare Center in South Toledo

The EduCare Center, located at the former Heatherdowns Elementary School, houses four separate programs designed to work with children as young as a few months old. Some of the programs offer services aimed at children with cognitive and physical impairments, with others serving unimpaired children. Part of what makes the center unique, according to Dr. Elizabeth Ruppert, the medical director of the Prescribed Pediatric Center, one of the organizations at the EduCare Center, is the way the programs mix children with and without special needs.
