Frequently Asked Questions
What is an integrated preschool program?
An integrated preschool classroom is comprised of both children who are developing within age expectations and children who have identified special needs. These needs can be a delay in speech and language development or fine or gross motor skills. Children with identified disabilities are on Individual Education Programs (IEP) and require specialized services in order to access a preschool curriculum.
What are the advantages an integrated preschool has to offer?
Integrated preschools are part of the public school system. The program is designed to meet the unique learning needs of all students. Staff is trained in all aspects of early childhood curriculum
Does my child have to be toilet trained?
No, your child does not have to be toiled trained in order to be accepted into the program. We will be more than happy to support your efforts at home and follow the program used in the home. Families need to provide all supplies in order for training to be successful.
My child is enrolled in the program do I have to reapply for next year?
Once your child is enrolled in the program they become first priority for the following school year.
Do you have a summer program?
At this time, the only summer program is for children on Individual Education Programs (IEP’s) who qualify for extended year services.
Do you provide snack?
Due to the high numbers of allergies we do not provide snacks. Families are to provide a small healthy snack and drink daily.
Do parents volunteer in the classrooms?
No. While we would like to have parent volunteers in the classrooms, we have found that our students have difficulty attending and accessing the curriculum when parents are in the classroom with them.
Do you provide extended day hours?
At this time we do not provide extended day programming.
We are going on an extended vacation. Do we still have to pay the monthly tuition?
Yes. If you would like your child’s spot waiting for you when you return all tuition needs to be paid in full. If you do not pay tuition, we will assume that you are no longer interested in attending the program, and we will give your child’s slot to someone on the waiting list.
Do you provide transportation?
Transportation is provided for children on Individual Education Programs only. Parents are to provide transportation to and from school daily for our neighborhood students.
