Ready Start Tuition Program

The Ready Start program is a blended multi-age, inclusive model, serving students, ages 3-5. Classrooms are taught and supported by a general education teacher, a special education teacher, and a para professional.

Inclusive classrooms create a dynamic learning environment for all students.

The average class size is 16 students, with class make-up of 8 students with IEP’s, 5 students who pay tuition, and 3 students who are income eligible.

Classrooms utilize The Creative Curriculum & Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment Tool.

The staff is committed to fostering student learning and cultivating friendships while creating a sense of community for our students.

Utilizing developmentally appropriate teaching strategies to support a whole child approach to learning, within an inclusive environment, fosters high levels of student learning and social and emotional growth for all students.
