Therapeutic Preschool

Our therapeutic preschool program will help prepare your little one for their academic future. We combine academic milestones with the therapeutic outcomes, including social skills and communication, to support children of all developmental needs.

Our therapeutic preschool program will help prepare your little one for their academic future. By aligning ourselves to the Illinois Early Learning State Standards, we combine academic milestones with the therapeutic outcomes, including social skills and communication, to support children of all developmental needs. Our preschool takes place in a very small group setting, no more than six children per class so that we can create an intimate and inclusive environment that will allow us to tailor our program to each child.

Every day your child will learn literacy, math, science and self-care. We explore these concepts through music, books, movement, sensory exploration, problem solving, and visual spatial tasks. Each activity will be modified to ensure your child’s success in our program. In addition to this, our program works to provide your child with the support that they need for transitions throughout the preschool day. We are committed to Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) through a play-based curriculum to support the needs of our students.

The program will emphasize the importance of social interactions with peers. The Developmental Therapist is skilled at developing your child’s social skills so they will be able to have meaningful and impacting interactions with other children in and outside of the program. Our program focuses on emotional intelligence; every child should understand and express their feelings. It is also important for every child to be able to comprehend and engage with others around their emotions.

Our preschool program will include comprehensive intervention lead by a Developmental Therapist. Each group will have Sensory, Fine Motor, and Gross Motor Therapies throughout the week, and a Speech Therapist will support your child’s feeding challenges during our lunch hour and in the classroom to enhance speech and language development.

This program will occur in our newly constructed clinic, which has several rooms devoted to our preschool. The clinic has a new sensory gym, allowing our children to regulate their bodies before challenging themselves with their academic tasks. With many other therapeutic rooms available, it is always possible to build in individual therapy sessions as well.

Children can be registered for full or half day programs. Enrollment can be for two to five days a week, and we do offer early drop off and late pick up. For detailed information on our preschool program, please email us at info@lumierechild.com.
