QSAC offers a center-based preschool program that provides children between the ages of 3 and 5 with an appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. We have class sizes of 6:1:3, 8:1:2, and 12:1:2. The "appropriateness" of each child's education is determined by the educational and behavioral goals outlined in each student's Individualized Education Program (IEP).
The preschool is a full-day, 12-month program with small classrooms led by New York State Certified Special Education Teachers.
All programmatic instruction at the preschool is implemented according to the principles of applied behavior analysis. Related services, such as speech therapy, are also provided as outlined by each child's IEP.
Referrals to the preschool program are made individually with a coordinated effort between QSAC and the Board of Education's Committee on Preschool Special Education.
