ATTENTION: Oxford Parents of Preschool Aged Children WE ARE SEEKING PEER MODELS
Oxford Public Schools is offering a Preschool Peer Model Program. This is an exciting educational opportunity for selected preschool children. The Preschool Program is located at Quaker Farms School and is looking for four year old children to participate in the preschool classroom as role models for their peers with special needs. In order to be considered, students must be four years old by August, 2017 and be an Oxford resident.
The Oxford Preschool is an interdisciplinary, language/literature/motor/play-based program whose curriculum is based upon the Connecticut Framework for its design and planned activities. We see the role of teachers as supporters of development and, as such, our role is to promote active learning on the part of the child. Our goal is to provide an appropriate learning environment incorporating both early childhood special education and developmental preschool programs, to prepare all children, those with disabilities and peer models, for the greatest opportunities for educational success. We understand that our children learn best through self-initiated activity; therefore, our learning activities reflect this philosophy. Children selected as role models will participate in an age appropriate curriculum that will foster cognitive and social growth in preparation for kindergarten.
Program specifics including schedules will be shared at the time of the screening. Tuition rates will be determined once the school budget is decided.
The application is available online on the Oxford Public School website. Please fill out the application and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org OR mail the application to Pupil Personnel Services, 1 Great Hill Road, Oxford, CT 06478 OR fax it to 203-881-5038.

The screening will be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Decisions will be based upon screening.
