Early Childhood Services
Services for Children Residing in Our 8 District Area
Keystone serves students with disabilities ages 3-5 within a variety of settings. Services for eligible preschool children may be provided in the home; in the preschool program the child is already attending, such as Head Start or a school's 4-year old preschool; or in a child care setting the child already attends. For some children, services are provided in one of the Keystones's integrated preschool classrooms which are housed by local school districts.

Keystone operates integrated preschool classrooms for children with disabilities and includes a limited number of peers without disabilities. One program component in each classroom focuses upon promoting children's positive social emotional and language/communication development, as presented in the LEAP (Learning Experiences: an Alternative Program for Preschoolers and Parents) program. This includes social skills training, visual supports, transition routines and monitoring skills.
Interested in having your child participate as a peer model?
Peer models for our Preschool Classrooms must attend a CYKI screening first and will be selected by a random drawing from the applicants for each school year.
Preference will be given to children who are 4 by Sept. 1, but 3 year olds will be considered. Peer models must be potty trained. Children turning 5 prior to Sept. 1 are considered kindergarten eligible and are not eligible for Keystone preschool programs. All children attending preschool must have proof of immunizations and the child health assessment required by the state of Kansas.
