Integrated Preschool Program
The Peabody Public Schools Integrated Preschool Program was created to provide opportunities for children with disabilities to receive specialized instruction and related services within an environment that includes general education peers with developmentally appropriate social/behavioral, communication, early learning, and motor skills.
The early childhood educators utilize a thematic approach to curriculum which is directly aligned to the Massachusetts Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences and the Massachusetts Common Core Standards.
In addition, to the integrated classrooms our program offers classrooms designed specifically for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder who require a substantially separate program. This full day program incorporates principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis, Video Modeling, Floor Time, and principles of sensory integration therapy. Integration opportunities are provided based on the individual needs of the child.
