The Preschool Experience
Our preschool is committed to a developmentally appropriate philosophy that combines a play-based, language model that is enriched by a strong academic curriculum to align with the standards that are well established by the MA State Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences. Our preschool believes in educating the whole child by respecting individual needs for social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. We believe our inclusive educational program provides all children with the opportunity to learn from each other while providing a lifelong foundation for respecting human differences.
Each class is staffed with a Masters level teacher and two teacher assistants. Speech and language, occupational, applied behavior analysis, and physical therapists are involved in all of the classrooms along with support personnel. Our professional staff also includes vision and mobility specialists and a school guidance counselor.
The Peter Noyes Elementary School is currently home to our three preschool classrooms.
The classrooms provide both integrated and separate setting options in varied configurations. The morning classes run from 8-10:30 daily. The afternoon classes run from 11:30-2:00 four days a week, and there is full day programming available as well. Wednesday afternoons are used for professional development, meetings and parent consults.
Students with Individual Education Programs have amounts of service time and days determined through the special education team process. Related services include: occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy and board certified behavior analyst consultation/direct service. The integrated classes have open slots for Sudbury preschool students to attend as tuition peers. To apply for a tuition slot please contact Ms. Stephanie Juriansz at Stephanie_Juriansz@Sudbury.k12.ma.us.
Program locations are subject to change according to district needs.
The preschool generally follows the Sudbury Public Schools calendar with a few exceptions.
