Pre-Kindergarten Program

Pre-Kindergarten builds children's socialization, cognitive and speech language skills in a playful, language-rich environment.

To attend Pre-Kindergarten children need to have a severe development delay and be at least 3 years old by December 31 of the year they are attending.

To qualify for Pre-Kindergarten, your child will need to have an assessment from a healthcare provider or a doctor, indicating that your child has a severe developmental delay. 

If you feel that your child may qualify for this program, but doesn't have a diagnosis, please call our office.

Specialized Therapy Education & Play Program (STEPP)

In conjunction with the PUF program, Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) funds a Specialized Services Program at Scott Robertson School . The STEP Program provides intensive intervention for families of children with severe needs that significantly limit their ability to participate in normal daily living activities.  FSCD determines eligibility based on a number of criteria which include; the child has critical service needs in two or more areas including behavior, communication and social skills, physical abilities, cognitive abilities or self-help and adaptive functioning, and that the family needs support to acquire specific skills and learn strategies to help promote the  growth of their child’s development and participation.

The STEP Program and PKP teams work together to ensure that strategies and goals for each child are consistent across environments (classroom,  the child’s home and community settings). The STEPP specialists collaborate with the PUF specialists assigned to each child’s classroom to ensure all strategies are consistent in each environment. STEPP staff attends meetings with PKP/Community school teams to collaborate and provide any new information about the children’s programming needs.

The focus of the STEPP program is parent education.  Parent education occurs through regular individualized home visits with a Behavior Interventionist, Consultants, Program Coordinator, parent in-services and group community outings.  Parents should plan on participating in programming once or more per week.

 The STEPP Team consists of: 

  • SLP
  • OT
  • Behavior Interventionists
  • Program Coordinator
