    Sudbury's Preschool Program

    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.

     Our program prioritizes multiple learning modalities and methodologies.  Each week, preschool classes attend an educational music class and a physical education/gross motor class.  Social emotional learning is the priority while literacy skills are taught inclusively and naturally in all classrooms. Artistic development is deliberately planned with curriculum integration on thematic units, and science and math standards are incorporated with each unit of study.  Outdoor learning opportunities are celebrated daily, as preschoolers go outside to play and practice social, gross motor and language skills with peers. In addition, we have a lunch bunch/social skills group with a rest period for students staying for a full day.

    Each class is staffed with a Masters level teacher and either two teacher assistants or an ABA tutor and a teaching assistant depending upon student needs. 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 a school psychologist, social worker, guidance counselor, and a vision and mobility specialist.

    The preschool generally follows the Sudbury Public Schools calendar with a few exceptions.  

     

    Community Developmental Screenings 

    Are You Concerned About Your Child's Development?

    If you have concerns about your child's development you should contact Anh Le, Early Childhood Team Chair, at anh_le@sudbury.k12.ma.us or (978) 639-3204 to discuss your concerns and to determine how to proceed. The preschool offers developmental screenings for community members every few weeks.  After an initial discussion with Anh Le, you will be scheduled to come in for a screening appointment with your child.  In addition, a family may request for a child may be observed in his/her educational setting, and our early childhood team consults and collaborates to determine the next steps. In some cases a child may be referred for a formal evaluation through the Sudbury Public Schools in order to determine eligibility of special education services.

    Is Your Child Receiving Early Intervention Services?

    If your child is receiving Early Intervention Services, your service coordinator will assist you in compiling a referral packet for your child. Once this packet is received by the Sudbury Public Schools you will receive a letter confirming receipt of the referral packet. A preschool coordinator will attempt to contact you three months before your child's third birthday to discuss appropriate evaluations and the evaluation process in order to ensure a smooth transition of services prior to your child turning three. This time will also ensure that Sudbury gains an accurate, developmental picture of your child in order to maintain the best services and program opportunities.
