The Garfield Heights Preschool 1/2 Day Program serves typically developing children ages four to five, in addition to children with special needs ages three to five, who demonstrate developmental delays or disabilities in:
- language development
- motor skills
- cognitive areas
- behavioral/emotional growth
- adaptive behaviors
A major component of the program is the integration of children with special needs with typically-developing children. Opportunities for interaction are developed for the benefit of all children.
Do you suspect your child has a disability or has your child been diagnosed with a disability? Contact Rosie Daddario here.
The curriculum is a combination of "traditional" early childhood programming, developmentally based, and specially planned, structured interventions and procedures to address the special needs of the children. Our preschool team includes early intervention specialists, instructional assistants, a speech/language therapist, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, a vision specialist, and a school psychologist.
Classes meet for 2-1/2 hour sessions on Monday through Thursday. (NO LATE START THURSDAY.) The morning session meets from 8:15am - 10:45am. The afternoon session meets from 11:40am - 2:10pm.
Our 1/2 day program is supported through the ECE grant, which allows us to offer a sliding scale payment system.
