What is Preschool?

Guiding Hand Preschool Program provides special stimulation for young children, ages 3-5, who have a wide variety of developmental delays.  The program is designed to provide a large range of functional and structured activities geared towards motor coordination, emotional development, socialization, cognitive readiness, speech and language development. 

Typically Developing Peers - children without any delays or disabilities - also attend 3 days a week to model and support typical progress. 

Guiding Hand Preschool offers speech, occupational therapy and physical therapy according to the needs of each child.  There is also a nurse and case manager, if needed.  Children can learn about the community through field trips.

Guiding Hand Preschool is in session 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 3pm each day.  Children eat breakfast and lunch at school.  They are transported on a bus with appropriate seating.
