Our Caring Team

Offering something truly unique to the area.

With over thirty years in the books, Space Coast Early Intervention Center has made a name as one of the most forward-thinking schools in Brevard County, with countless success stories from students and parents alike.

We know that the success of each child isn’t solely dependent upon the teachers or administration. That’s why we take a community approach to learning—partnering with parents to spark hope, answer questions, and provide resources for learning outside the classroom. Because while we are educators, many of us are also parents; and at the end of the day, we all just want what’s best for our kids.

These are the people who make it happen—the movers and shakers who keep schedules running smoothly, attendance up-to-date, paperwork in line, accounts in balance, teachers on their toes, and so much more.
