Pre-School Program

Pre-School Program

Children enrolled in Starlight's preschool program attend up to 4 full days a week. Transportation, adaptive physical education,speech and language therapy, physical therapy,occupational therapy and nursing services are available to meet the individual needs of the students. The unique feature of the pre-school program is that it is designed to serve typically developing children together with children who have disabilities.

The Starlight pre-school program provides opportunities for challenge, stimulation,understanding, and acceptance among children. Community agencies and the schools of Muskingum County are working together to provide a quality preschool program at Starlight.
The pre-school program is guided by two basic facts:

  • Learning is an active process.
  • Children need nurturing and support to experience their own development timetable without expectations of conformity to a particular program or single group.
Teachers guide children through active exploration and interactions with adults, other children, and materials. Play-based choices enrich the learning process through a wide range of learning experiences.
