I remember years ago being confused.
(OK, so I’m often confused. But I’m talking about a specific confusion.)
What is the preschool at Finn? Who is it for? Why is it in the public school?
I’ve since learned that the school provides special education programming for 3-5 year olds who need it. To improve their education, they integrate “typically developing” children from the community to serve as “peer role models”.
If you think your child may benefit from this education, you should schedule a screening. The district has announced its upcoming screening for the next school year will take place on January 31, 2014. Appointments should be scheduled by Tuesday, January 17.
Integrated Preschool Screening Notice for Fall 2014 Admission
The Northborough/Southborough Public Schools’ Integrated Preschool Program is inviting neighborhood children who will be three years old by June 15, 2014 for a screening for possible enrollment. Our program brings together neighborhood children and children with special needs. The screenings will take place on January 31, 2014 at the Zeh School (for Northborough residents) and the Finn School (for Southborough residents). An appointment is required. A program brochure covering both preschool locations can be found on our website: http://tinyurl.com/bcett95 .
To receive a hard copy of the brochure, or to schedule a screening appointment for January 31st, please call Deb Young, Preschool Secretary, 508-393-4378, between December 9, 2013 and January 17, 2014 (M-F, 8:30 a.m. – noon).
[Of course, I wouldn’t expect anyone to be answering the phones today and tomorrow is also unlikely. So mark your calendar to give them a call next week.]
