What is the Preschool Neighborhood Friends Program?
Preschool Neighborhood Friends is a program where typical peers have the opportunity to go to school with preschoolers with special needs. The Program is located at Eader Elementary School, and we are currently accepting applications for children who are 4 years old for the upcoming school year.
What makes this Program unique?
Preschool Neighborhood Friends learn alongside peers with autism and other special needs, in a structured, positive, and nurturing setting taught by high quality staff. In each classroom, the staff include a credentialed special education teacher and special education trained paraeducators. The staff use best practices and research-based methodology for early childhood education. There is a small staff to student ratio, and students participate in whole group, small group, and individualized learning opportunities. Students acquire foundational kindergarten readiness skills, as they develop learning to learn, social, language, and behavior management skills.
