The Department of Student Services will be conducting screenings on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at New Hartford Elementary School. There are two purposes of the screening: One is to identify preschoolers with developmental delays or special needs that may require early intervention. The other is to compile a list of children interested in participating in the program as "typical peers", those who are developmentally functioning at an age-appropriate level, to play side by side with children that present with special needs in an environment designed for learning through active exploration.
All children must be screened before an application will be accepted. The tuition for the three year old program is $1800.00 and the full-day 4 year old program will be $4500.00 for the 2022-2023 school year. A lottery for prospective students will be conducted in the spring. Student Services will notify families of exceptance.
3 year old program is Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 11:00.
4 year old program is Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 3:00.
If you are interested in having your child screened, or would like more information about the program, please call Student Services Office at 860-379-1653.
