Early Childhood Friends Together Preschool
GROW. LEARN. PLAY
The Region 15 Early Childhood Special Education program is a comprehensive public pre-school program located at Long Meadow Elementary School. Children ages 3-5 attend mixed age class sessions, based on the individual needs of the student. Children with and without disabilities participate in some sessions, which we refer to as our “Friends Together” Program
Our integrated program is designed to meet the needs of students who are typically developing and also students who have special education needs. Designed as an interdisciplinary, language/literature/ motor/play-based program, the curriculum is based upon the Connecticut Framework for its design and planned activities.
Students receive instruction in kindergarten readiness skills and to address individual needs, the program provides speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, social skills education, behavioral consultation, psychological and counseling services.
