THE PRESCHOOL EXPERIENCE

Our preschool is committed to a developmentally appropriate philosophy that combines a play-based, language model that is enriched by a strong academic curriculum to align with the standards that are well established by the MA State Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences. Our preschool believes in educating the whole child by respecting individual needs for social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. We believe our inclusive educational program provides all children with the opportunity to learn from each other while providing a lifelong foundation for respecting human differences.

Each class is staffed with a Masters level teacher and two teacher assistants. Speech and language, occupational, applied behavior analysis, and physical therapists are involved in all of the classrooms along with support personnel. Our professional staff also includes vision and mobility specialists and a school guidance counselor.

The Peter Noyes Elementary School is currently home to our three preschool classrooms.

Are  You Concerned About Your Child's Development?

If you have concerns about your child's development you should contact Stephanie Juriansz, Early Childhood Administrator, at stephanie_juriansz@sudbury.k12.ma to discuss your concerns and to determine how to proceed. After an initial discussion, Sudbury will ask to receive written information, which is gathered by the family and teachers in order to make the appropriate recommendations. In most cases a child is then observed in his/her educational setting, and our early childhood team consults and collaborates to determine the next steps. In some cases a child may be referred for a formal evaluation through the Sudbury Public Schools in order to determine eligibility of services.

Is Your Child Receiving Early Intervention Services?

If your child is receiving Early Intervention Services, your service coordinator will assist you in compiling a referral packet for your child. Once this packet is received by the Sudbury Public Schools you will receive a letter confirming receipt of the referral packet. A preschool coordinator will attempt to contact you three months before your child's third birthday to discuss appropriate evaluations and the evaluation process in order to ensure a smooth transition of services prior to your child turning three. This time will also ensure that Sudbury gains an accurate, developmental picture of your child in order to maintain the best services and program opportunities.
