Preschool Integration Program (PIP)
The District 15 Early Childhood Program includes a preschool experience for typically developing three- and four-year-old children who reside within District 15 boundaries. This program is unique in that it blends children who have disabilities with children who do not. They have a chance to play and learn together in an accepting and challenging environment. This preschool experience offers the same type of curriculum that is provided at developmentally appropriate community preschool programs. The classes meet for four half-days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). The morning session is from 9:05–11:35 a.m. The afternoon session meets from 1:05–3:35 p.m.
