Types of Programs for Children 3-5
The educational programs available to children between the ages of 3 and 5 vary widely depending on the needs and disability of the child. Even though, historically, educational services for children 3-5 have been segregated by disability or other labels, today the challenge is to meld these programs and services into a more integrated preschool environment that serves all children regardless of disability label.
More information is available on the following programs for children between the ages of 3 and 5:
- Early Childhood Special Education
- At-Risk Pre-Kindergarten Education
- Heartland Head Start Program
- Child Care Programs & Community Preschools
