Life-Changing Outcomes for Exceptional Kids



A mission statement should be fairly simple; it is the why behind a company.  At First Children our why is delivering Life Changing Outcomes for Exceptional Kids.  Whether it be a child in one of our day schools learning to take steps or eat solid food, a previously non verbal 5 year old with autism attending their regular public school or a teenager who wouldn’t leave their bedroom due to anxiety now attending a four year university, we aim to achieve our why day in and day out.  These outcomes look different for each child and we aim to partner with families and payers to achieve positive life improvements based on the individual and their own unique situation.  

We aim to become the leading pediatric behavioral health and special education services company in the mid-atlantic region.  We will do this by providing exceptional quality of care, hiring the best and brightest in their field, integrating a variety of clinical disciplines working together, being accountable for positive outcomes and operating our company as efficiently as possible.  

We do not believe in a one size fits all approach, particularly for children with complex behavioral health and special educational challenges.  Instead, we aim to build true continuums of care across all of our service lines and populations; where children, their families and our payer partners have access to diagnostics, evidence based treatments/services, education and family supports under one roof.  

At First Children, we are family owned, family operated and family centered.  Family is at the heart of what we do and how we do it; when you receive services from us, you become part of the First Children family.
