Children enrolled in the Early Childhood: Exceptional Educational Needs program are just beginning their educational experience. We make a special effort to help them feel comfortable in our school environment. The program provides opportunities for children to play, make choices, and learn at their own pace. Individual, small group, and total group experiences are provided. Teacher-directed and child-directed opportunities are an important part of our students’ school day.


In planning for lessons and activities, tasks are modified to meet the individual learning styles and needs of each child. Parent and family participation is an important component for the success of our program.


The program is designed to meet individual needs; therefore, each student’s schedule will reflect the amount of time that is adequate to meet those specified needs. Typically, there will be a combination of center-based and home-based programming.
