What is Special Education Preschool?

  • Our Preschool is designed for children with special education needs to play and learn with typically developing peers. If your child is 0-3 years old use the Early Intervention link below. If your child is 3-5 years of age use the Child Find link for information on requesting a screening.

    If you think your child might have a disability, we have several intervention and assessment methods we use to identify and find the best path for your child. Please see below for more information.
