Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Program

Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Program Queens, NY

Our Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Program services preschool children between the ages of 3-5 which includes preschool  students with a disability and students without disabilities.  Services provided are based upon the individual needs of the preschool child found to have a disability, as determined by the Committee on Preschool Special Education of the local school district.  Special education services are at no direct cost to the parent; funding is provided through county taxes and state funds.  Sesame also provides an educationally oriented program of learning through play.

Sesame’s teachers are focused on the NYS Preschool Learning Standards for all of our preschool students.  We utilize the New York City Department of Education’s 3K and Pre-K for All units of study, as well as components of the creative curriculum because it is aligned with the Learning Standards and provides a developmentally appropriate framework.  To support our children’s social-emotional and self-regulation development, we use the Second Step Early Learning Program, as we are committed to educating the whole child in a manner that respects each child’s unique development.  Sesame Sprout also utilizes the Building Blocks Preschool Math Curriculum, in collaboration with coaches from Bank Street College of Education.
