Our preschool offers an educational program for preschoolers which includes special education services, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling within an integrated educational environment for children with special needs as well as those without. Each classroom is taught by New York state-certified special education teachers, with experienced and certified teaching assistants that help in the implementation of the Creative Curriculum. We use a proactive approach to achieve positive behaviors which is focused on teaching and acknowledging positive behaviors to ensure that students are safe, kind and responsible.
Our classrooms are bright, colorful, full of language development and language stimulation, nurturing, and open to endless possibilities for student exploration and “hands-on” learning. We embrace the early childhood policies of Easterseals, that include providing an educationally stimulating classroom environment enriched with language stimulation and positive behavior management strategies.
We currently offer 3 classrooms and are excited to soon expand our space to include an additional classroom and gym. Our curriculum focuses on using the strengths of the students to build self- esteem and the important preschool skills of socialization, language development, academic readiness and motor development.
