Preschool program for children with special needs
For 3 to 5-year-olds
Vancouver Public Schools offers a free half-day preschool program for children ages 3 to 5 who have special needs. Each preschool classroom has one special education teacher and two paraeducators. Our child-centered program provides special education services including cognitive, communication, adaptive, social emotional, behavior, fine motor and gross motor goals. The goal is for all students to achieve kindergarten-readiness skills.
