Enrollment/Registration Information


Needham Preschool is an integrated preschool program in which children of different levels of ability are educated together. Children with and without disabilities participate in our program. We are mandated to enroll children who are not identified with special needs in each of our integrated classrooms to provide peer modeling to our students who are identified with special needs.
