History

In 1979, Douglas County began a preschool program to meet the needs of 3 and 4 year olds identified with developmental delays. The program meets all requirements of ADA and IDEA. The program was successful in meeting the individualized needs of the children, as well as providing a quality preschool education. Many families requested a high quality preschool experience for their children. Positive benefits were noted by both parents and staff when all children were included and educated together. In 1991, the preschool expanded the program to include community preschoolers on a space available basis, supported by community student tuition. Through an inclusive preschool setting, the learning needs of all children are met in the most respectful and positive way.
