Half-day Preschool 

Liberty offers half-day for preschool for both 3 and 4 year-old students.  Classes are taught by a certified teacher with two instructional assistants, and class sizes are approximately 10-12 students in the 3/4 year-old classrooms and 16-18 students in the 4/5 year-old classrooms.  These classes are designed primarily for students who have individualized education plans (special education services) and students can receive speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, and/or physical therapy and related services as needed as part of their preschool day.   We also enroll a few 4-year-olds in half-day preschool on a tuition basis to serve as peer models in the preschool classes, but those spots are limited.  Liberty Preschool follows the Creative Curriculum in our preschool classrooms and works on developing your chid's social-emotional, communication, and academic skills while helping them prepare for a strong start in Kindergarten.  Time is spent each day in whole group learning opportunities, small group hands-on learning, and play!

Speech-Language Therapy Groups

Students who receive speech-language therapy as part of their individualized education plan (IEP) may participate in half-day or full-day preschool classrooms at Liberty.  They may also attend a speech-language therapy group that meets once per week for 1 hour, depending on their identified needs.  These groups are taught by a speech-language pathologist and speech-language pathologist assistant, with 5-6 students in each class.  Class times vary each year and will be scheduled with parents at their child's IEP meeting.  Time is spent each day working on targeted communication goals, as well as introducing students to a group circle time, snack, and play!
