At the Preschool, each class is taught by one Lead
Teacher, supported by Assistants. The number of staff in each class depends on
the number of students and the learning needs of children.
Our program model uses integrated therapies. The Speech/Language Specialists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants work in collaboration with the teaching team to provide therapy services throughout the school day. Most therapy takes place in the classroom setting, with the therapists working along side the teachers. All children benefit from the presence of the additional staff in class. It enhances the learning for all and increases the staff-to-student ratio.The classes follow the Acton-Boxborough District Calendar. Each class meets four days a week, Monday through Thursday. The exact hours of operation may vary year to year. During the 2016-2017 school year, the sessions meet
Monday through Thursday at the following times:
Morning Class: 8:45 to 11:30am
Morning Class: 8:50 to 11:35am
