Integrated Preschool Program
The Murfreesboro City Schools Integrated Preschool is a new program that offers preschoolers, with and without disabilities, challenging experiences through a language-based curriculum.
Murfreesboro City Schools currently has seven integrated preschool classrooms located in 4 schools within city limits. These classes are special education classes for children ages 3-5. Peer models are screened and then placed at each site to serve as role models and peer helpers to children with special needs. The integrated preschool classroom is a structured teaching environment where special needs children and peer models learn together in a classroom that is staffed with one special education teacher and two education assistants. The curriculum is a language-based program emphasizing age-appropriate developmental skills and kindergarten readiness skills. Emphasis is placed on transitioning from one activity to another, listening and following directions, social skills, and independent self-help skills.
