The Windsor C-1 School District has two types of early childhood programs, and both programs are housed at Freer Elementary. The first program is Early Childhood Special Education. Children are eligible for this program if they are between the ages of 3 years old and 5 years old, and have an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for special needs in at least one area. ECSE is a half day program, Monday – Thursday. In each session, at least 3 children also attend who do not have special needs. These children are chosen from a waiting list after having been screened by Parents as Teachers. Our second early childhood program is Title One Pre-Kindergarten. Children are found eligible for this program if they score below the 50th percentile (average) in any one area (Motor, Concepts or Language) on the DIAL-4 Screener completed by Parents as Teachers. Children are automatically eligible if their family qualifies as low income (WIC or food stamps), English Language Learners, or homeless. Please take a look at our Early Childhood Handbook (link found below) for more information about our program including upcoming events.
A new addition to our Early Childhood Handbook (10/1/15): In accordance with MO SB 341 section 210.003.1, the Windsor C-1 Early Childhood and Title 1 programs will notify parents and guardians, upon parent or guardian request, of whether there are children currently enrolled in or attending the facility that have filed an immunization exemption.
