The South River Preschool is an innovative program designed to facilitate inclusion of all special education students with their typically developing peers. Preschoolers learn through play and social interaction. Three different preschool programs are offered based upon the needs of our students: the Verbal Behavior Program (one full-day self-contained class), Self-Contained Program (one half-day class), and a General Education Program (three half-day classes). The Creative Curriculum is implemented in all of the preschool classes. Most of our special education students are placed in the general education preschool program. A critical component of our program is the immediate change of placement to the general education preschool as soon a student can benefit from increased inclusion.
