To Learn. To Lead. To Make a Difference.

Orange Inclusive Preschool

OIP Program

The Orange Inclusive Preschool is designed to provide developmentally age-appropriate experiences in a safe and nurturing educational environment.  We believe the work we provide to the children should be challenging, engaging work that will meet each child’s social and educational needs. We believe that these experiences promote the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development within curricular activities of typical and special needs children.  These areas are integrated in implementation and are centered on the children’s interests while engaged in play.  Our program seeks to enable children to reach their potential.  Children with disabilities and typical preschoolers serve as role models for one another.

OIP services children from ages 3-5.  The teacher/student ratio is two to three adults (1 teacher and 1 assistant) to up to 16 children. Each class consists of children with varying abilities, up to eight of whom are students who are eligible for special education services. 

Six half-day classes are held Monday through Thursday. Our morning program is designed for our younger learners and is held from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Our afternoon students (ages 4-5) join us from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Each student is required to pay a one-time Activity fee of $150 which is applied towards field trips, classroom parties, and classroom materials. Tuition for our typical peers is $150 per month and may be paid via check or by using the District's online payment program.
