QSAC offers a center-based Preschool program which provides children between the ages of 3 and 5 with an appropriate education in the least restrictive of environment. We have class sizes of 6:1:3, 8:1:2 and 12:1:2. The "appropriateness" of each child's education is determined by the educational and behavioral goals that are outlined in each student's Individualized Education Program (IEP). The pre-school is a full day, 12-month program with small classrooms led by New York State Certified Special Education Teachers. All programmatic instruction at the pre-school is implemented according to the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and related services, such as speech therapy, are also provided as outlined by each child's IEP. Referrals to the pre-school program are made on an individual basis with a coordinated effort between QSAC and the Board of Education's Committee on Preschool Special Education.
