Early Childhood Program
In-district preschoolers, who are found eligible for special education services and require a classroom placement to receive their instruction, are taught at Laura B. Sprague School and are integrated into the Sprague community as appropriate. These students benefit by receiving instruction and therapeutic services by District 103 employees who may continue to be their service providers into their early elementary years. Parents are also able to form relationships with these same teachers and therapists. The Early Childhood children benefit from creating relationships with older students and interacting with siblings as appropriate. This relationship helps the district address the strengths and needs of the whole child who, as a preschooler, is continually evolving and developing.
Early Childhood Programs in District 103 include:
- Early Childhood Self-Contained Classroom
- Early Childhood Blended Classroom
