Eligibility of Services

Chatham Inclusion Preschool Information

The Chatham Preschool Program has been designed to provide a learning environment that allows children to feel safe, comfortable, and part of a community of learners. This safe, nurturing, and rich environment promotes active exploration in all areas of development. Learning is facilitated by giving children the opportunity to make choices about which activities and materials they will use, which allows children to establish independence, self-esteem, and confidence.   The program utilizes a curriculum based on the premise that young children learn best through active engagement and by learning at a child’s own pace.
