Preschool Inclusion Program

The Linwood School District is again offering a half-day Preschool Inclusion Program at the Seaview Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year. Our Preschool Inclusion class enrolls preschoolers with disabilities along with typically developing children. The program uses a developmental curriculum appropriate for all children. Class size is limited with instruction provided by a certified teacher and two instructional aides. The program will prepare children for Kindergarten.

The program runs four days per week (Monday through Thursday). Friday is reserved for parent workshops, staff meetings, community activities, and parent conferences. Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $2,750, subject to final approval of the 2019-2020 budget. The program will follow the Linwood School District calendar. Parents will be responsible for transportation.

Entrance into our preschool program will be made through a lottery system. The lottery is open to three year old children only. Children must be three on or before October 1, 2019 and toilet trained to be considered.  Students who enter the program as three year olds will continue as four year olds.  Applications for children turning four on or before October 1st will not be accepted.

If you are interested in giving your child the opportunity to participate in this positive preschool experience, please complete the Google form or pick up an application in the Child Study Team Office at Belhaven Middle School.  Completed applications are due by 12:00 PM, Wednesday, April 17, 2019. The lottery will take place Tuesday, April 30th, at 2:30 PM at Seaview Elementary School.
