The Linwood School District is again offering a half-day Preschool Inclusion Program at the Seaview Elementary School for the 2018-2019 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, community activities, and parent conferences.  Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $2,750, subject to change upon final approval of the 2018-2019 budget.  The program will follow the Linwood School District calendar.  Parents will be responsible for transportation.

There will be three year old placements available. Students who enter the program as three year olds will continue as four year olds.  Selection for these placements will be made through a lottery system. Children must be three on or before October 1, 2018 and toilet trained to be considered for the program. 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 pick up an application and return it to the Child Study Team Office at Belhaven Middle School by 3:00 PM, Friday, April 20th, 2018.  For your convenience, applications will be available for pick-up beginning March 19, 2018 in the Belhaven Child Study Team office.  The lottery will take place Friday, April 27, 2018 at 2:30 PM in the Seaview Elementary School cafeteria. Parents are invited to attend.

Preschool students who are eligible for free and reduced lunch will qualify for participation in the preschool inclusion program at no cost.  If you have any questions, please call Ms. Susann Tahsin.
