At Valley Road School we offer an integrated preschool program that is designed to provide a well-rounded educational experience. Students with special needs, benefit from learning alongside their general education peers through hands-on, meaningful, play-based activities.
In the classroom each child is viewed as a unique individual, and developmentally appropriate practices are used to build skills in the areas of cognition, social, emotional, fine & gross motor, self-regulation, self-help, and language skills. Assistive and augmentative communication devices are used as appropriate. Techniques from occupational, physical, and speech therapy are woven throughout the day for all students.
We believe that children learn through investigation and an environment where they feel significant. Curiosity is encouraged and ideas are shared. We have fun learning, and positive skills are developed that will follow each child throughout the rest of their educational experience.
We service children 3 to 5 years of age through full and half day options. Communication between school and home is ongoing.
