Preschool Program

The Mission of Early Childhood in CCPS is that all children will


enter school with the readiness skills necessary to become successful learners. Referrals for preschool programs may come through Child Find or through transitions from Infants and Toddlers Programs. Services and supports for children with educational disabilities are identified by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team. Based upon individual student needs, preschool services are determined

  • The provision of speech-language services prior to enrollment in school at the child’s home school or community location,
  • A CCPS Preschool classroom,
  • A CCPS Pre-kindergarten classroom, or
