Pre-Kindergarten Programming

The Shelton PreK program is a 5 day per week, half-day special education program, designed to provide special education services to students ages 3 and 4 who live in Shelton and are identified as having a disability.  We open up spots in each of the 3's and 4's classrooms for typical peers to participate, at no cost, except parents must provide transportation.  

Each year we take applications in the Spring, and then hold a screening process for typical peer candidates. We will accept applications throughout the school year.  We use the CT Early Learning Development Standards to identify those candidates who might serve as strong language, behavioral, and social skill models for disabled peers in the class.

Our preschool is a language-based program, and we follow the CT Early Learning Development Standards in our instruction.  Click here for more information about these standards:  CT Early Learning Development Standards

Typical Peer 2023-2024 School Year

We are currently seeking typically developing peers to serve as role models in both our AM & PM classes for the 2023-24 school year. To be considered for the program, your child must turn 3 or 4 by the first day of the new school year. Applications will be accepted throughout the year. All children will be screened throughout the school year at Mohegan School or  Long Hill School,  at a mutually agreed time.  Children will come into the building for a short screening. Please call Mrs. Eileen Victoria from the Office of Teaching and Learning  at (203)924 1023 ext. 317.  Applications can be found on the Shelton Public School website.
