CLC was founded in 1991 as a private agency that focused on the development and implementation of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs. CLC further developed into a fully certified NPA servicing Bay Area school districts and families in the year 2000. One year later, CLC preschool, known as Foothill Preschools, was founded with a focus on typically developing children, while offering inclusion for eligible pre-school students on the Autism Spectrum. In 2005, Creative Learning Center opened a Non-Public School designed to meet the needs of children who require a highly individualized behavioral and educational setting.
