Residents of Community Consolidated School District 181 are invited to register for the District’s Preschool / Early Childhood Education Program. The program is a blended classroom for 3-5 year-old students with and without disabilities. The students are co-taught by two certified early childhood teachers who also hold certification in special education. An integrated service approach is utilized with a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, social worker, certified school psychologist, and an English Language Learners teacher, all collaborating to meet students’ diverse learning needs.
Classes are held at Oak School (950 S. Oak Street, Hinsdale) and run Monday through Friday. Morning sessions are open to three year-old students, while afternoon sessions are open to four year-old students.
To be enrolled, children must be three years old by September 1, 2013, reside within district boundaries, and be toilet-trained. Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Families with a child currently enrolled in a District 181 school do not need to provide proof of residency at the time of registration, though current families are required to update and provide residency documents every May for the coming year. New families must provide proof of residency at the time of registration.
Parents should bring the child’s birth certificate, proof of residency, the completed registration form, and the registration fee ($55.00) to Oak School during school hours. The registration form and a list of acceptable residency documents can be found on the District website: www.d181.org > Schools > Preschool/ECE.
