Our building and our curriculum have been designed to meet the complex needs of students with and without disabilities help them develop the necessary readiness skills to prepare them for kindergarten. Our teachers are highly qualified public school certified in early childhood, special education or a combination of both specialties.
Students who attend ECDC participate in our inclusive, or "integrated" preschool model. In these language-based classrooms, children of all ability levels, with and without identified special needs, are taught together in an environment that nurtures peers as partners in learning.
Research has proven that linking children of varying ability levels actually enhances the growth and development of all the children. Each of our classrooms maintains a low class size, maxing out with 15 students, with a Massachusetts certified teacher and at least one qualified educational assistant.
Franklin residents who turn 3 by August 31st are eligible to register for the integrated preschool program at ECDC.
