All About Preschool
 
Eligibility
Preschool is offered to any 3 year old with a known disability/delay. The disability could be in Speech/Language (how well your child speaks and the words they use), Cognition (counting, color recognition, alphabet knowledge) Fine Motor (how the child uses small muscles like their hands), Gross Motor (how the child uses large muscles like arms and legs), Social Emotional (maturity, meltdowns, getting along with others), or Self Help (what the child can do for his or herself).  A child that is 4 must be 4 on or before August 1st of that school year.  4 year olds can be income eligible or also qualify with a disability/delay.  We will conduct a screening of your child in these areas using the Brigance. 

Ongoing Assessment
We use Teachign Strategies Gold at the beginning of the school year and at the end to note progress.  We also continue observations throughout the year to monitor their progress.   The assessment will look into all of the categories mentioned above as well as Math and Literacy.

A Preschool Day
At Jamestown Elementary we have two different sessions.  One group attends school on Mondays and Wednesdays while the other group attends on Tuesdays and Thursdays.   We typically start our year a couple of weeks after regular school has started and usually end a couple of weeks before regular school is out.  Our school day is also shortened.  Children arrive around 8:00 and leave at 1:30.  Sometimes this may differ according to bus routes.

Not Daycare
We are not a daycare. I hold a teaching degree. We provide children with an education.
