Pre-Kindergarten Day Program | CASA

Pre-Kindergarten Day Program

The CASA Pre-Kindergarten Program is a tertiary-level, multi-disciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic educational resource for children aged 4 and 5 who are experiencing severe challenges managing or regulating their emotions and behaviour such that they have been unable to participate meaningfully in the home and community options. Associated difficulties with development, executive functioning and learning may be evident.

 

The program is intended to provide intensive family-centered diagnostic review and therapeutic education, developmental intervention and clinical care in a specialized early childhood setting. It consists of two classrooms with separate morning and afternoon classes of 7 children. Children attend half-days Tuesday through Friday for the 10 month school year.

 

The family along with the multidisciplinary care team of professionals from the areas of education, psychology, psychiatry, pediatrics, social work, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology collaborate on the following broad goals:

 

  1. Enhance healthy social-emotional, cognitive and physical development.

  2. Strengthen the family’s ability to support their child’s development and learning by promoting parent confidence and competence.

  3. Promote school readiness and prepare children for success in both school and community settings.

  4. Facilitate effective transition and reintegration into community-based services.

Referrals must be made by a physician. Download the Pre-Kindergarten Program referral form and, once completed, fax it to CASA Intake Services at 780-435-6261.
