About the Early Learning Program
From the Darien Public Schools website:
The Early Learning Program is an integrated preschool where children with special needs and children with typically developing skills learn from each other in a nurturing environment. It has been part of the Darien Public School system since 1996.
The 16 hour a week program for 3 year olds and 4 year olds follows a modified Darien Public Schools calendar. The classrooms are at Tokeneke, Royle and Ox Ridge Elementary Schools, and Monday through Thursday, from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Site locations cannot be guaranteed.
At this time, ELP does not have a preschool option for children turning 5 in September to December 2020.
Parents will be notified/emailed by Jan. 10, 2020 regarding acceptance.
