Our Pre-Kindergarten At Risk Program (PKP) is funded by the Illinois School Board of Education Early Childhood Block Grant which states: "Pre-Kindergarten At Risk... is an educational program for children ages 3-5 that also provides parents of participating children with educational and involvement opportunities. Pre-K At Risk programs serve children who... have been determined through a screening process to be at risk of academic failure... The services may be either classroom or homebased..."
The Early Childhood-Special Education program is a structured instructional environment which meets the individual needs of children ages three to six. These may lie in the areas of cognition, language, gross/fine motor, and/or social interactions. Curricular instruction is provided in large and small groups as guided by the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP). Program personnel working together with parents will provide for the development of the whole child. The overall goal of the Early Childhood-Special Education program is to assist children in the development of skills necessary to enhance learning.
