Early Intervention (PUF) Program

Early Intervention (PUF) Program

Florence MacDougall Community School offers a very successful Early Intervention Program designed for 3 and 4 year old children who would benefit from some level of intervention prior to attending Kindergarten. We are currently seeking children who may qualify for our upcoming 2020-2021 program.

About Early Intervention

Early Intervention provides its students with a structured, language enriched environment that will support the development of language, fine and gross motor skills, social skills and other areas of need identified by specialists. The classroom teacher, with the help of a team of assistants, will implement a hands-on, interactive style of programming.

The program curriculum is completely designed to meet the diagnosed needs of the children in the classroom and support the development of academic skills needed for Kindergarten.

Programming will include group activities, centers (ie. puzzles, dramatic play, crafts, building, etc.), writing, read alouds, music and much more.
