Pre-K Neighborhood Peers Program

 

What is The Neighborhood Peer Program About?

The Peer Model Preschool Program is part of the Johnston Public Schools Special Education Early Childhood program which serves preschool children with developmental delays. We are excited to offer openings for typically developing children, 3 1/2 to 5 years old, to participate in an enriched learning environment focused on developing communication and language, social, self-help, motor and cognitive skills. Early literacy and math skills are emphasized and align with RI Early Learning & Development Standards. Peer models also learn leadership and helping skills by modeling appropriate play and communication for their classmates with developmental delays.
