Mountain Brook Inclusion Preschool Program
Mountain Brook Schools offers an inclusive preschool program for 3, 4, and 5K in all four elementary schools. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of both typically developing young children and those with special needs. The program was developed to provide opportunities for children with disabilities to receive instruction and services in a typical preschool classroom that includes peers. Each preschool classroom has openings for families to apply their children to be considered for the peer spots. Peer children should demonstrate appropriate social, behavioral, and communication skills.
Complete the Peer Model Application and send to Cory Morris, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 32 Vine Street, 35213. Once we receive this completed application, your child’s application will be placed on a waiting list. If your child’s application is moved from the waiting list to the applicant list, you will be contacted by the preschool teacher. (Applicants are typically selected in January for the next school year, but openings may occur at any point throughout the year.) There is a $150.00 registration fee to process your application, and it will be necessary to meet Mountain Brook Schools’ enrollment policy.
Open spots for 2023-2024 are still available at Mountain Brook Elementary School, however all families zoned Mountain Brook can apply!
Peer Model Student Participation
Once a child is accepted as a peer model in the preschool classroom, the 1st year of participation may be reviewed to consider the appropriateness of social, behavioral, and communication skills in this setting.
