The primary purpose for our program is to ensure access to quality early childhood services for families in the Meridian School District. The focus of the three to five preschool program is to support each and every child’s individual development, ensuring school readiness when entering kindergarten. Our classroom is rich in early literacy and language experiences and focuses on the emerging social skills that will enable children to be successful in a group setting.
Free screenings are available to help identify children ages three to five who may have developmental delay. Our early childhood evaluation team assesses children in the areas of communication, motor, adaptive skills, social-emotional development and cognition to determine the need for early intervention. If a child is found to be eligible for services, an Individual Education Program (IEP) is written to address the needs of the child.
Children who have visual, hearing, or orthopedic impairment, autism, brain injury, specific diagnosis, or chronic health problems may also be eligible for services.
