PRESCHOOL SCREENING AND REGISTRATION
The Barnstable Inclusive Preschool Program educates children with disabilities alongside their typically developing peers. We are still looking for children ages 3-5, with strong language, social, and play skills to serve as peer models for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year, as we offer rolling admission throughout the year.
If you are interested in having your child become part of our program, the first step is to have your child participate in our preschool screening. During the screening, your child will participate in a play group with other children and will be asked to perform some simple tasks (ex: building with blocks, coloring, turning pages in a book) by our teachers and therapists. Our team will be observing how the children act in a group, how they communicate, if they are able to follow one-step directions and more. The purpose of the screening is to identify children who will be strong role models for our students with special needs and also to identify any children who may need to be referred for evaluation, should we believe they may need additional support.
TO BE SCREENED, YOUR CHILD MUST BE ATLEAST 3 YEARS OF AGE BY THEIR ANTICIPATED ENTRANCE DATE
WE WILL BE OFFERING A SUMMER SCREENING SESSION FOR ENTRANCE TO OUR PROGRAM 9/3/15!
Date and time still to be determined. Please check back soon for details.
PLEASE BRING WITH YOU:
Registration packets will be handed out at the screening. Once accepted into the program, parents will need to submit completed registration packets as soon as possible. Complete registration packets are required prior to beginning school.
Please call the Preschool Office at 508-790-9890 ext. 148 with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!
