Hopewell Valley offers a continuum of programs for preschool-age students, offering developmentally differentiated instruction. Based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), our programs offer social / behavioral supports and related services (speech, occupational and physical therapies) to students qualifying for these services.
Half Day Preschool Disabilities Class (PEECH: Preschool and Early Education for Children of Hopewell) is our integrated preschool program, designed to offer children the opportunity to learn and play with age-appropriate peers with and without developmental challenges. Skills are developed through play centers.
Full Day Preschool Disabilities Class (SKIP: Special Kids in Preschool) is our preschool class with all classified students. There is a lower student-to-teacher ratio, allowing a thematic approach to learning, expanding language, vocabulary and experiences.
