- Teachers & Staff
Tucked within the walls of the John G Leach School is a very special preschool program. We are a full-day, play-based preschool that serves children ages 3-5 both with and without special needs. Each classroom is led by a certified teacher and is supported by 2 trained paraprofessionals. Preschoolers learn and grow through circle time, center activities, dramatic play, block play, specials, sensory play and gross motor activities. While these activities may look like ‘just play,’ they are actually helping children to develop daily living, pre-academic and social skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Teachers use the Houghton-Mifflin, Handwriting Without Tears and MOVE curricula to develop and adapt all of the classroom activities to meet each child’s unique needs. Speech, Physical and Occupational therapists round out the classroom team to support the educational program through individual, group and consultative means when necessary.
