The DVUSD Special Needs Preschool Classroom provides free educational services for children who qualify for special education in accordance with federal and state regulations. Children ineligible for special education may attend preschool on a tuition basis as 'preschool peers'. The practice is based on the belief that integrating non-disabled peers into special education classrooms proves beneficial for the children and families involved.
To enroll as a preschool peer, children must demonstrate age appropriate development in motor, communication, self-help, cognitive, social and emotional domains. Children must be 4 years of age by December 31st of the current school year and not eligible for kindergarten.
Current Typical Peer Waiting List: 3 spots available (for 4 year old students) for the 2018-2019 school year afternoon class.
If you would like to be added to the waiting list please fill out these 2 forms in the front office (or click here and here) with a $25 non-refundable deposit. (New students only)
