How do I enroll? Your first step is to call 314-953-7635 and ask to be scheduled for a free developmental screening through our Parents as Teachers program.  After your screening, you will receive a referral into one of the following programs.

Early Childhood Special Education

The early childhood special education program is provided for three (3) to five (5) year old children with developmental delays in the following areas:

  • Communication development (speech and language)
  • Physical development (fine and gross motor)
  • Cognitive development
  • Social or emotional development
  • Adaptive development

Speech, physical and occupational therapy services are available to students who qualify. Children are eligible for free early childhood special education services when developmental delays are identified through a diagnostic evaluation. Classes are located at all three early childhood centers with half day programming available 3 or 4 days per week.  Transportation is provided.

Title Classes

Title classes are available five days a week at Central Early Childhood, West Early Childhood, Arrowpoint Elementary, Granneman Elementary, Keeven Elementary, Larimore Elementary, Townsend Elementary, and Twillman Elementary.  There are half day classes for three year olds and four year olds by referral only.  Transportation is not provided.

Typical Pre-School Lottery
The integrated preschool program is a fee-based preschool available for a limited number of typically developing students that meets three (3) or four (4) half-days per week. Classes are a combination of typically developing children and children with developmental delays. Classes offer a developmentally-appropriate curriculum designed to prepare students to become active learners and creative problem-solvers and to prepare children for kindergarten. These classes are located at all three early childhood locations. Children must have turned 3 or 4 on or before July 31 of that school year (see documents below for 2014-2015 lottery form). Program spaces are limited so students are entered into a lottery which is held each May.  Program fees are $150 per year for 3 day classes and $200 per year for 4 day classes. Parents are responsible for transporting their child to and from school.
