Classroom with child in wheelchair

The Preschool Program is federal and state mandated program for children ages 3-4 who have been identified as needing specially designed instruction due to an educational disability.

We are an integrated preschool, meaning our students with special needs learn and play along with peer partners, who help to model age- appropriate language, social, and learning skills.

  • Located at Maple Elementary School
  • (7 Chapel Street, Easthampton)
  • Preschool sessions are Monday – Thursday
  • (closed on Friday)
  • Morning Session 9:00 – 11:30 am
  • Afternoon Session 12:15 – 2:45 pm
  • Tuition for half day peer partners $280/month
  • Tuition for full day peer partners $460/month

We offer free screenings on a regular basis. Screenings help to determine if a child is achieving developmental milestones in language, fine motor, gross motor, visual memory, and cognition. Screenings are available for Easthampton residents at least 3 years of age.
