An integrated preschool classroom is comprised of both children who are developing within age expectations and children who have identified special need. This need can be a delay in speech and language development, 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 advantages does an integrated preschool have 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 toilet 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. If your child currently attends in the afternoon and you would like to switch to the morning you also will be given first priority for a morning slot.
Do you have a summer program?
At this time, the only summer program is for children on Individual Education Programs (IEP’S).
Do you provide snack?
Generally, no, given the number of children with allergies LCP does not provide a daily snack for your child.
Do you provide lunch or can my child purchase lunch during Lunch Bunch?
Children who attend Lunch Bunch are required to bring their own lunch in a lunch box. There are no microwaving opportunities for this class group.
Do parents volunteer in the program?
Yes, parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classrooms. All volunteers must have a CORI check before volunteering.
Do you provide extended day hours?
At the present time, the preschool operates an AM and PM session. On a space available basis, children attend both the AM and PM session. We don’t provide extended day ( before or after school) services.
We are going on an extended vacation do I still have to pay my 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 don’t 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 only for children on Individual Education Programs who have no other way to get to school. Parents are expected to provide transportation to and from school daily.
