Preschool Program

WCS operates a Preschool Program in the East End building. There are four classrooms in the preschool program, each taught by a certified teacher (Intervention specialist) and includes a teacher’s assistant. Classrooms are made up of a maximum of twelve students. Eight students in the classroom have been identified with special needs (ages 3-6) and four students in the class are typically developing peers. The typical peers in the program are expected to demonstrate age appropriate social and communication skills and to support the learning of their peers in the classroom.

In our preschool program, students will always have the opportunity to move, sing, observe, create, discuss, read, and play! This is all done through hands-on exploration and encourages perseverance. We embrace emergent learning that covers all areas of academics in a play based environment and at an appropriate level for our students. Environments that encourage play are environments that are preparing children for kindergarten, future elementary school academics and a love of life long learning!
