Developmental Preschool Is Seeking Peers!
*Children who are 4 years old are eligible for tuition-based enrollment in the Desert Mountain Developmental Preschool Classroom as a peer role model. We are seeking peers who display excellent language and behavior skills to attend our classes.
*Peers are included in our preschool program to provide role models for the students who have special needs. Our hope is that each group of children will learn from the other.
*The parents of preschool peers pay tuition. Tuition is $145 per month. It is due the first school day of each month.
*Peers attend preschool four days per week, Monday through Thursdays. Morning session runs from 8:45-11:15 and the afternoon session runs 12:30-3:00. If you are interested in your child attending as a peer please contact the teachers by email.
