THE CHILDREN’S THERAPY CENTER CTC CEREMONIAL GROUNDBREAKING OF THE DAVID F. BOLGER CAMPUS SERVING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES THROUGH AGE 21
OAKLAND, NJ – The Children’s Therapy Center (CTC) is a state approved, not-for-profit private school with locations in Fair Lawn and Midland Park, NJ, that has provided educational and therapeutic services for children with multiple disabilities for over 60 years.
Over 70 people attended the Ceremonial Groundbreaking of The David F. Bolger Campus in Oakland, NJ yesterday (October 7, 2015). The CTC was proud and honored to have Oakland Mayor, Linda Schwager in attendance as well as Freeholder, Tracy Silna Zur, along with David F. Bolger, J.T. Bolger, esteemed members of the CTC Board of Directors, CTC graduate and Ambassador, Jonah Gold as well as CTC parents, donors, staff and volunteers.
The new, 39,000 sq. ft., Oakland campus will take the place of the CTC’s current Midland Park Campus as well as expand programs and services by providing the capacity to serve children through age 21. The anticipated timeline to open the new campus is September, 2016. The plans include 14 classrooms, a hydrotherapy center, vocational training center, visual performing arts center, a fitness center, multiple adaptive playgrounds as well as Occupational, Speech and Physical therapy centers. Wide hallways, various lifts, pulleys and ample storage space for therapy and mobility equipment will allow our students to learn, grow and develop in a light, bright and cheerful environment. Thanks to the dedication of David F. Bolger, The Bolger Foundation, the CTC Board of Directors and donors, we were able to raise $7.5M toward this important $13M project. From a one room walk-up to an organization existing on two campuses – Fair Lawn and Midland Park (soon to be Oakland), The Children’s Therapy Center is proud to be serving children ages 18 months through an eventual 21 years of age while lending support to their families.
Special thanks to philanthropist David F. Bolger for having the vision to realize this dream and for challenging the CTC to achieve it.
