Preschool classes meet Monday through Friday for 6.5 hours per day. Children alternate between two different settings, both focusing on communication skills. In groups of two or three children, a listening and spoken language professional provides direct language instruction focusing on vocabulary, syntax, conversational language, articulation, auditory training, and language enrichment. The small student to teacher ratio gives each child multiple opportunities to practice syntactically correct language. Children engage in a larger group setting with up to fifteen children led by a general education teacher and teacher assistant as part of their preschool day. This setting focuses on positive social and emotional skills, fine and gross motor development, pragmatic use of language, literacy and school readiness skills. The preschool offers the opportunity for a child to become fully immersed in an education setting learning through oral instruction and interacting with classmates using complex language.
