Windsor C-1 School District Early Childhood Education
Program Contact Information
Janelle Dinwiddie, Process Coordinator
The Windsor C-1 School District has two types of early childhood programs, housed at both Windsor and Freer Elementary, based upon where the child lives. 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, 1-3 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, which is geared to help children who may be at risk for success in kindergarten. To participate in this program during their pre-kindergarten year, children must turn 4 on or before July 31. 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.

Upcoming Early Childhood Events:
Due to Covid 19, all plans for family involvement activities, classroom parties, etc, are on hold at this time. If circumstances become safe for large groups to gather and we are able to plan family involvement activities, we will send home information by the Remind app, email, and paper flyers. Events will also be posted on this page.
