Developmental Preschool Program
The DVUSD Developmental Preschool Classroom provides free educational services for children who qualify for special education in accordance with federal and state regulations. Children ineligilbe for special education may attend preschool on a tuition basis as "preschool peers." This practice is based on the belief that intetgrating non-disabled peers into special education classrooms proves beneficial for the children and families involved.
A non-refundable $25.00 application fee will be required to enroll your child in the preschool program. Monthly payment system is online:
