BENEFITS OF THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM
- The Preschool program is staffed by Ms. Tara Burdi, Ms. Courtney Nealon, and Mrs. Liz Madinabeitia who are all dual-certified as teachers of early childhood and students with disabilities. We implement the High Scopes state-approved curriculum and provide additional support to our preschoolers with trained paraprofessionals in our classes.
- Preschoolers participate in age-appropriate Dickerson assemblies, theme days, class parties, and special events.
- Preschoolers enjoy an exceptional and unique experience attending our program with other preschoolers who have special needs and learning how to be good role models and good friends.
- Preschoolers have the opportunity of making a very smooth transition to kindergarten when they are five, because our teachers get to know them. Likewise, the preschoolers get to know the teachers, and other students, and how to navigate the school.
