Program Description
Fishing Cove Elementary School is home to five inclusive preschool classrooms AM (3yr old) and PM (4yr old) sessions.  All staffed with highly-qualified teachers.
What does Inclusion mean?

"Inclusion means teaching all children together, regardless of ability level. Inclusive programs celebrate children's similarities as well as their different abilities and cultures. In inclusive classrooms, children with special needs take part in the general education curriculum based on their ages and grades. They are not put into a separate classroom, but rather the curriculum and the classrooms are adapted to meet children's needs."
