Preschool Program: Our program provides services which are research-based and promote emotional, physical, mental, and social well-being in young children. We serve students ages 3-5 years; including those with special needs and those considered “at-risk”. Each classroom has one teacher and one paraprofessional.
We offer two sessions daily, Monday – Friday. Our calendar closely aligns with the school district; however, we have some variation due to screenings and special events.
If you are interested in the program please feel free to call and set up an appointment for your child to be screened or for more information.
