Preschoolers Learning Together (PLT)

Preschoolers Learning Together (PLT) is a half-day preschool program offered to children ages three through four years (by September 30), who are eligible for the PLT program. This is an opportunity for typically developing children from the Alexandria community to be integrated into an early childhood special education (ECSE) classroom for the purpose of providing typical role models to students with disabilities.

Licensed ECSE teachers implement a play-based special education program with an emphasis on providing services to students with an individualized developmental delay or disability.

Developmentally appropriate activities are incorporated into the daily routine.
