Preschool Day Program

The CASA Preschool Day Program (Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten) is a tertiary-level, interdisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic educational resource for children aged 4 and 5 who are experiencing severe challenges managing or regulating their emotions and behavior, 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. Children attend 2 full days a week for the 10 month school year, either Tuesday and Thursday, or Wednesday and Friday. There is a maximum class size of 9 children.

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

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

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

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

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

Referrals must be made by a physician. Download the Preschool Day Program referral form and, once completed, fax to CASA Intake Services at 780-435-6261. Please include all relevant reports to avoid delays.
