What is an Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Program (IPK)?
This is a tuition-based general education program for preschoolers ages 3, 4 or 5 (not Kindergarten eligible or turning 5 by October 1st), where PSD students may be placed if appropriate. The PSD student should be well-along the developmental matrix for the young child so that he/she can benefit from the general education preschool classroom and the large number of peers in the room. The PSD child may spend time in this room for socialization, role models, or be placed in this class as part of our PSD continuum.
Class Size: 16 max
