About Ann Windle School for Young Children

 

Ann Windle School for Young Children is not a day care center, but a learning center – a place where caring teachers nurture every child so they can become lifelong learners.

 

There are four early childhood programs:

 

Pre-Kindergarten: The preschool program, offered to eligible 3 and 4 year olds, is designed to help children strengthen their self esteem, language skills and academic readiness, physical development and pre-computer skills.

 

Head Start: Head start provides comprehensive, full day education – similar to the Pre-Kindergarten program - for low-income preschoolers. The program is funded to serve three- and four-year-old children. To be eligible for this program, the family income must meet federal income guideline.

 

Deaf education: The school offers a full-day preschool program for young children who are hearing impaired. The curriculum emphasizes academic readiness, and speech, language and auditory remediation.

 

Special Education (PPCD):  Students with disabilities, who are eligible for special education, are served from ages 3 and above. Needed services may be in the areas of language development, communications skills, motor skills, academic readiness, self help or social-emotional skills.
