The Berkeley Center has grown and we love it. Since opening it’s doors in July of 2007, Berkeley has tripled in student population, staffing and now in physical space.
The new addition of space, located just across the street from CIP Berkeley’s main office includes a 3rd classroom and 2 more staff offices where our social thinking instructor, Nicky Avant and our tutor and medication coordinator, Terika Tischer, have moved recently.
We already held our last Open House for the public and our annual fall Parent Weekend luncheon, program and wine and cheese events, all in this new space.
As we build the new student space further, we hope to add a pool table and table tennis table to the open student computer and workspace and the big screen TV already in place. The generous donation of one set of parents will bring us this table tennis (aka ping-pong) addition.
Come and visit us. We have much more room to breathe and grow.
