Mountain Brook Inclusion Preschool Program

  • Program Description
    The Mountain Brook Schools 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 peer models. Each year openings are available for “peer model” children. Peer model children should demonstrate appropriate social, behavioral, and communication skills.

    Application Process
    Complete the Peer Model Application and send to Cory Morris, at
      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.) We will then require a $150.00 registration fee to process your application and it will be necessary to meet Mountain Brook Schools’ enrollment policy. 

    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.
