Preschool Program

Early Intervention Builds Success

The first five years of a child’s development are crucial. Research shows that interventions for children with developmental delays at an early age are successful in enhancing cognitive, speech and language, motor and social skills.  

The BOCES 2 Preschool Program offers a variety of services to address the needs of children ages 3-5.  Referrals for preschool programs are made by the local school district Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE). Comprehensive data in support of the referral must accompany all referrals. For further information, parents of children ages 3-5 should contact their home school district Committee on Preschool Special Education office.
