Thank you for your interest in the Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Program at the John F. Kennedy School.
Randolph Public Schools offers a Pre-kindergarten Program for children between the ages of three and five years who have been identified as having disabilities, or special needs.
Some of the classrooms are Integrated Pre-kindergarten classrooms, each of which features an environment where children discover, create, and learn based on the Common Core Standards approved for Pre-kindergarten by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The curriculums used in the classrooms are World of Wonders for English Language Arts, and Eureka Math for mathematics. Although primarily provided to serve children with special needs, the Integrated Pre-kindergarten Program features a comprehensive, language-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum designed to meet the needs of a variety of learners. In those classrooms, typically developing children from the community are invited to join us as Peer Partners to work, talk, and play alongside children with special needs. This partnership enhances the social and language development of all.
The schedule for the Integrated Pre-kindergarten is as follows:
AM: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday start: 8:30am dismissal: 11am
PM: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday start: 12pm dismissal: 2:30pm
Classes run from September through June, following the same schedule as the town’s Kindergartens. Tuition for the Integrated Pre-kindergarten has been set at $200.00 per month for the 10-month program. There is no transportation provided.
In order to qualify as a Peer Partner, a child must take part in an informal screening. Age, class size, and gender balance are taken into consideration as new students are admitted. Screenings are held throughout the school year as classroom openings become available.
