  • Children are encouraged to make choices. This fosters independence.
  • Children learn to take care of themselves and others.
  • Children are introduced to behaviors that will help them function as learners throughout school.
  • painted-hands-preschool-brochurePreschool activities provide children with the prerequisite skills for academic learning. Through play, children are preparing for reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.
  • Preschool provides opportunities for gross motor play such as running, jumping, climbing, and riding.
  • Children have access to materials that they will use throughout their schooling.
  • Preschool teachers model social skills and facilitate problem solving and conflict resolution.

How to apply:

Families interested in either program should attend a preschool information sessionĀ (date and time to be announced soon). Applications will be provided at the information sessions.

Other Tidbits:

  • If you have an older child who participated in a Joel Preschool program, it DOES NOT guarantee a spot in the program for your other children.
  • If your child was selected for a screening for the Inclusive Preschool, it DOES NOT mean he/she will be offered a spot in the program.
  • If you are concerned that your child may have a disability, contact the special services office at 860-664-6505 to request a developmental screening.
  • Scholarships through Best Beginnings are available for participation in community programs.
