Applicants with Special Education Needs
We want to ensure that we are the right school for each child. We designate a significant number of seats for children with a variety of special education needs, but are most successful with children who are interested in socializing with others and have some language and/or communication abilities. At the end of the application process, children with identified special needs will be invited to come to a playdate with a parent. The playdate gives us a chance to get to know your child and ensure that our program will meet his or her needs and help him or her to develop well under our care.
If you have any questions about your child's needs and the application process, our Inclusion Specialist, Nancy Schwartz, will be happy to talk with you about your child. Her extension is 208.
An application fee of $75 is required for all applicants. We do not require testing or an interview for general admission. Your application is incomplete without the application fee.
