If your child does not qualify for preschool services from your school district’s special education program, there is still hope. It may take more time in researching the community options available but the time and energy you put into it is a worthwhile investment. It can promote your child’s safe and healthy development. Many families start their search for early care in one of two ways: They either ask other parents for referrals or they call the local child care resource and referral agency. We explore ways parents looking into community preschool programs can find quality classrooms that promote their child’s needs, we touch upon the differences between a play-based programs, Montessori and other curriculums and what to look for in inclusive preschools.
