Our Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Programs serve children with special needs and their typically-developing peers who are three and four years old, with priority given to four year olds. (Children must be three years old before August 31, 2013 to be eligible for these programs.) Classes are half-day sessions held on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at the Snug Harbor Community School and the Della Chiesa Early Childhood Center.
Pre-Kindergarten Screenings have been held for the 2013-2014 school year and invited students will be notified in May. If you are interested in learning more about the program or adding your child’s name to the waiting list, please call the school which meets your eligibility requirements to set up an appointment.
