PreKindergarten Programming


The Shelton PreK program is a 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 3s and 4s 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 over two days for typical peer candidates.  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.pdf
