Please Note: This classroom is considered an Early Childhood Special Education classroom. Peers are neighborhood children who are not experiencing a disability.  As such, a child who qualifies for special education services (those who have an IFSP) can only attend if their IFSP team (which includes the family) determines that the special education classroom is the least restrictive placement for the child to receive their special education services. If you have questions about your child’s placement, please reach out to your special education provider.

*The last day to apply for Preschool For All is Tuesday, April 30th. The application window will re-open in July ’24 (date TBD).

If you are unable to apply on your own and need help applying for the ’24-25 year, Preschool for All Family Navigators can help submit an application and guide you through the process.
