Shining Stars Preschool Accepting Lottery Applications Through Wednesday April 12
One of the state's top preschool programs for four-year-old children is currently accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year.
RRPS's Shining Stars Preschool provides inclusive
programs for children with developmental disabilities and their
typically developing peers who are chosen via lottery and funded through the New Mexico Pre-K Initiative Grant. Children who receive
Special Education services have Individual Education Plans (IEPs) with
learning goals and objectives based on needs identified through
authentic and formal testing.
The typical Shining Stars schedule involves 3 hours per day, four days a week and offers early
childhood learning experiences with a focus
on developmentally, linguistically, and culturally appropriate
curriculum. Class sizes
vary (from 10-13 students) and are served by special educators and
you visit our classrooms, you will see several adults in the room. A
certified teacher designs the daily program based on developmentally
appropriate curriculum. Educational assistants help the teacher
implement the plans. Therapists integrate their activities into the
curriculum. The school team,
along with families and other caregivers, work together in roles which address each child's specific strengths and needs.
Philosophy: We do what is best for all kids!
