Updated: February 28, 2013 8:02PM
HINSDALE — District 181 residents are invited to register for the district’s Preschool/Early Childhood Education Program.
The program is a blended classroom for 3-5 year-old students with and without disabilities. The students are co-taught by two certified early childhood teachers who also hold certification in special education. An integrated service approach is utilized with a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, social worker, certified school psychologist, and an English Language Learners teacher, all collaborating to meet students’ diverse learning needs.
Classes are held at Oak School, 950 S. Oak St., Hinsdale, and run Monday through Friday. Morning sessions are open to 3-year-old students, while afternoon sessions are open to 4-year-old students.
To be enrolled, children must be 3 by Sept. 1, reside within district boundaries, and be toilet-trained. Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Families with a child enrolled in a District 181 school do not need to provide proof of residency at the time of registration, though families are required to update and provide residency documents every May for the coming year. New families must provide proof of residency at the time of registration.
Parents should bring the child’s birth certificate, proof of residency, the completed registration form, and the registration fee ($55) to Oak School during school hours. The registration form and a list of acceptable residency documents can be found at www.d181.org > Schools > Preschool/ECE or call Sharon Arvis at (630) 887-1330.
