Preschool Program

Overview of the Program

The Greenwich Public Schools Integrated Preschool Program serves both youngsters with identified special needs and those who are typically developing. Through a structured, center-based program, each child participates in instructional activities/experiences, which address the domains of communication, cognition, self-help, fine/gross motor and social emotional development.

The Guiding Principles and Curriculum of the Preschool Program

  • Early Learning and development are multidimensional: the development domains of cognitive, personal and social, physical and creative expression aesthetic development are interrelated and throughout the day.
  • Young children are capable and competent.
  • There are individual differences in rates of development among children.
  • Children will exhibit a range of skills and competencies in any area of development.
  • Knowledge of child growth and development and consistent expectations are essential to maximizing educational experiences for children and to developing and implementing programs.
  • Families are the primary caregivers and educators of their young children.
  • Young children learn through active exploration of their environment through child-initiated and teacher-selected activities.
