ChildrenFirst PPEC Medical Day Care
This is not just care for the day….it’s care that lasts throughout
your child’s growth and development!
ChildrenFirst PPEC is here for you every
step of the way. Our exceptional nursing,
therapy and education programs are unique
to ChildrenFirst. Along with nursing and PT,
OT and ST, we provide a daily experience in
early childhood education, centered around
the developmental needs of your child. ChildrenFirst
is the only PPEC in the U.S. to
be accredited by the National Association
for the Education of Young Children. Let us
help your child achieve their fullest potential!
The open concept design of our centers
inspires a nurturing, interactive and collaborative,
health care environment in which
our children thrive! Your child is never
segregated into closed rooms. Our nurses,
therapists, aides and certified teachers are
assigned throughout the center to assist
your child with every need!

Who Pays For PPEC?
Straight Medicaid pays for the nursing care
received at PPEC. If your child is in a Medicaid
MMA plan such as WellCare, Sunshine or
Amerigroup, or others—those plans pay for
therapy and transportation provided at PPEC.
That’s why other PPECs require your child
to switch to straight Medicaid or Children’s
Medical Services to attend their PPEC,
because they don’t have contracts with the
MMA plans for therapy and transportation!
ChildrenFirst accepts Medicaid, CMS and
EVERY Medicaid MMA plan, so our parents
NEVER have to change to straight Medicaid
or CMS in order to get all PPEC services with
us! Why do we care if parents are told to
change plans to get PPEC services? Because
more and more families benefit greatly from
the their MMA plan. Some of the area’s leading
specialist physicians only accept MMA
plans. Almost 90% of all Medicaid families
are in a MMA plan, NOT straight Medicaid.
Don’t be mislead into changing your insurance
plan in order to attend any PPEC. Keep
your MMA plan, keep your specialists, keep
all of your providers and still get nursing,
therapy and transportation when you choose
