DAP Program Needs:

Early Childhood Program*
The following items will be used for DAP’s 0-3 Child-Parent Psychotherapy, a subset of the Youth Program, that began in early 2017. We would like to make a mobile “toy kit” for home visiting and to simplify moving between various program rooms at DAP. The links that are included share examples of toys we have used in the past. We are in no way connected to any of the vendors. Gently used items are welcome!
