The Community Friends Program is designed for children 4 to 5 years of age who demonstrate age-appropriate skill development. They are enrolled in Early Childhood Special Education classes with children who have an Individual Education Program. The fee for the Program is $80/month (4 days/week) or $40/month (2 days/week) for the 2019-20 school year.
Children need to demonstrate good language and social skills and be independent in toileting, cooperative with teacher directives and demonstrate typical activity level for their age. Parents must be able to provide transportation. Busing is not available for Community Friends.
