The Sweetwater County Child Developmental Center offers a Preschool program for all students ages three to five in both our Green River and Rock Springs locations. Our preschool staff utilizes the Wyoming Early Learning Standards and evidence-based curricular materials including Core Knowledge Language Arts, Eureka Math, Heggerty Phonological Awareness and Zoo Phonics in order to prepare students for transitioning into Kindergarten. We offer both morning and afternoon sessions.
Preschool Plus Program:
Our Preschool Plus program is for students that are placed on an Individualized Education Program (IEP). In addition to our preschool curriculum, we provide a variety of specialized services to these students, including but not limited to, Cognitive/Pre Academic Skill Development, Speech and Language Therapy, Augmentative and Alternative Communication Services, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Social and Emotional Development, and Play Therapy. These early intervention services help children meet their developmental milestones and maximize their developmental progress.
Our Little Learners program offers the opportunity for parents and their two to three year old to attend a hands-on, fun, educational, and interactive class session designed to assist parents in preparing their children for preschool. Topics will include Kindermusik, Nutrition/Health, Social-Emotional Play, Motor Skill Development, Oral Language Development and Literacy. Classes will be held in each center, one to two times per month, and are limited to 10 children in each class.
Birth to Three:
Our Birth to Three program (otherwise known as Part C) assists infants and toddlers placed on Individual Family Service Plans in meeting their developmental milestones. This program provides services in the home and/or the child's natural environment and includes parent education and coordination of services.
