Discovering each child's lifelong potential

How Do I Enroll My Child?

All children who attend Mary Cariola have a developmental delay and may also have other diagnoses, including autism, mental or behavioral disorders, cerebral palsy, or prenatal exposure to drugs. All children enrolled at Mary Cariola must be referred by a third party.
  • Your home school district must place children and young adults from three to 21 years of age
If you have referral questions, call 585-271-0761.
  • Ask for the Preschool Director if you’re calling about children from three to four years old
  • Ask for the supervising social worker if you’re calling about children from
    ages 5–21
Tuition for students is paid either by the county or the school district. We do not accept private pay.
