The Bowling Green School District provides a preschool program for children with special needs. The preschool classes are taught by certified teachers and follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Each class is held for 2 1/2 hours, Monday through Thursday. The classrooms are housed at Crim Elementary School.
Anyone who knows a child between the ages of 3 and 5 who may have special needs, contact Kim Tussing at (419) 352-3576 ext. 4031.
An important part of the preschool program is the involvement of peer role models. Children participating as peers must be between the ages of 3 and 5 (before Sept. 30) and must demonstrate typically developing skills. There is a fee for this portion of the program. If you know a child who would be appropriate as a peer for the children with special needs, contact Tussing.
Bowling Green Area Schools also offers a school-age program for children with special needs,
Through collaboration and utilization of a team approach, the educators of Bowling Green Schools create and implement program specific to the needs of children 5 through 21 years of age.
Call Amy Scherer at (419) 352-3576 ext. 4030 to enroll in this program.
