Our Integrated Preschool Program offers classes in a blended setting of children with developmental disabilities and children with typical development. Learning in an integrated classroom provides many advantages for students. At its core, it fosters inclusion and friendship, as well as an appreciation for a variety of learning methods. For students without disabilities, the classroom setting teaches leadership; while students with disabilities benefit from increased social connectedness and peer support.

Broadmoor School’s Integrated Preschool Program, which the Ohio Department of Education rated 5 Stars in Step Up to Quality by the Ohio Department of Education, is comprehensive and offers:

  •  Play-based curriculum
  • IEP for preschoolers with special needs
  • Technology instruction
  • Physical education from an adapted physical education instructor
  • Emphasis on cognitive, social, communication, fine/gross motor and self-help skills
  • Weekly on-site swim classes with an aquatic instructor, assistant and lifeguard
  • Staff that includes a registered nurse, speech therapist, as well as occupational and physical therapists

Any child from ages 3 – 5 years with a developmental disability whose family resides in Lake County is eligible to attend Broadmoor’s Preschool Program by request from their local school district. All children with disabilities receive Preschool Special Education services, as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Services are offered to children who have been identified through a Multi-Factored Evaluation as having a documented deficit in one or more of the following areas: communication, vision, hearing, motor skills, social emotional and behavioral functioning, self-help skills, and/or cognitive skills. Therapists work in classroom with children on a schedule and classes use play-based instruction, adaptive physical education, and swimming.

Typically-developing preschool students can enroll in the Integrated Preschool Program by contacting Broadmoor and paying a minimal tuition fee.

For the convenience of the families and students we serve, a Daycare Program is available. For more details, call 440-602-1035.
