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.
WE ARE NOW OFFERING FREE TUITION TO ALL PEERS!
If you are interested in having your child become part of our program, the first step is to have your child participate in a developmental 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. Because many of our students with special needs have communication delays, we do require that peer models in our program speak English fluently.
TO BE SCREENED, YOUR CHILD MUST BE AT LEAST 3 YEARS OF AGE BY THEIR ANTICIPATED ENTRANCE DATE
OUR NEXT SCREENING DATE WILL BE IN MID OCTOBER - DATE TO BE DETERMINED SOON!
WHERE: Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center - 77 Old Craigville Road. Hyannis, MA 02601
WHEN: Wednesday from 2:00 - 3:30 PM
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!
