Integrated Preschool Program


River Vale Public Schools
Integrated Preschool Program

The River Vale School District is pleased to host an Integrated Preschool Program. The Integrated Preschool Program is different than other preschools in that it incorporates the education of special education preschoolers with that of general education preschoolers.

The teacher of this class is certified in both general and special education. Special education youngsters are placed in the program through an evaluation process performed by the Department of Special Services. General education students are chosen through a lottery drawing. If the number of applicants exceeds the available spaces, a waiting list is established. Children are placed on the waiting list in the order of the draw in the event additional openings become available during the school year.

To be eligible for the integrated program, a general education student must be at least 3 years old, but not yet 5 years old on October 1st of the applicable school year. General education students must also be fully toilet trained. All students chosen to attend the program are required to complete the registration process which includes providing a birth certificate, copy of immunizations, a medical exam and proof of River Vale residency.

The Application Form is available by CLICKING HERE or at the Child Study Team Office in the Roberge Annex located at 609 Westwood Avenue.
