Peer Model Application

  • Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center is home to Barnstable's public inclusive preschool program and includes children with and without disabilities.  Children without disabilities or diagnosed learning needs are considered peer models.  Participating in an inclusive preschool program with others who have disabilities allows children the opportunity to develop the social and emotional competence essential for success in school and in life!  The inclusive preschool is an ideal environment to practice important skills, such as; perspective taking, empathizing, appreciating diversity, respecting others, communicating, listening well, self-advocacy, and problem-solving.  

    To be considered as a peer model, children must:

    • Be a resident of Barnstable
    • Be at least 3 years old prior to anticipated entrance date
    • Be fully potty-trained by entrance date
    • Demonstrate age-appropriate skills in all areas of development


    Peer model spaces in our program for the 2021-2022 school year are currently full.  We are no longer accepting applications.  We will begin accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year in January of 2022.
