The Coventry Public Schools' Early Childhood Education Department, working in conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), is committed to providing Coventry's youngest children with high quality special education services and preschool programs. Research has shown that one of the best ways for children to succeed in school is to provide all children with access to high quality programs for early learning.

High quality programs are developed using policies and practices that have been proven to provide positive life experiences resulting in learning for all children. Coventry Public Schools offers a variety of programs to support and develop our youngest students.

Child Outreach - Child Outreach is a FREE developmental screening program offered through the Coventry Public Schools in conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Education.

Screening also provides information to help identify children who may need more in-depth evaluation in the event that a disability or developmental delay may be present.
