Early Childhood Special Education Peer Model Program
Keystone Learning Services sponsors Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) classrooms in local school buildings. These preschools are designed for children 3 to 5 years of age who qualify for services in areas such as communicating, learning, hearing, vision, moving or socializing. Currently these programs are housed in Meriden, Oskaloosa, Valley Falls, and McLouth. To enhance the program, children who are developing typically have been accepted as peer models. Peer Model applications are currently being accepted for the 2022-2023 school year. Names will be randomly selected in a drawing that takes place in July. The application deadline is June 30, 2022.
