Pre-School Sites

Beginnings has a very unique preschool integration model.  Our mission is to provide services to children in their existing early childhood settings.  Our collaborative partners have the shared vision of including all children within their programs. Their philosophy allows for our integrated approach to Special Education to succeed in the community.  We form collaborative partnerships with Head Starts, UPK's and day cares to support children so they can remain enrolled and learning within these programs.  We place our special education teacher next to the early childhood teacher to form our integrated classrooms.  We commend their commitment to children and families.
