Education programs offered at the Langan School at Prospect include preschool and school age classes for students ages two through twenty one. A hands-on learning approach is incorporated to enhance development of specific skills. The curriculum emphasizes academic and pre-academic activities, and is aligned with the New York State core learning standards for preschool and school aged students.
Both preschool and school age teachers develop and implement activities to support the goals and objectives of each student’s individualized education program. Major performance areas include social and emotional development, language and communication skills, cognitive/intellectual abilities, motor development, pre-vocational and vocational skills, health and safety skills and approaches to learning with specific learning outcomes for each area.
Federal and State regulations have mandated that parents play a major role in determining where their child receives preschool and school age services. Parents know their child best and play a key role in evaluating programs and making decisions about what’s best for their child. One thing is for certain, decisions will be made and your involvement as a parent is crucial.
