Preschool Peer Role Model Program

ATTENTION: Oxford Parents of Preschool PEER MODELS

Oxford Public Schools offers a Peer Model Program as part of the Oxford Preschool. This is an exciting educational opportunity for selected preschool children.  The Preschool Program is located at Quaker Farms School and is looking for three and four year old children to participate in the preschool classroom as role models for their peers with special needs.  In order to be considered, students must be 3 or 4 years old and be an Oxford resident.

The Oxford Preschool is an interdisciplinary, language/literature/ motor/play-based program whose curriculum is based upon the CT Early Learning and Development Standards for its design and planned activities.  We see the role of teachers as supporters of development and, as such, our role is to promote active learning for all students. Our goal is to provide an appropriate learning environment incorporating both early childhood special education and developmental preschool programs, to prepare all children for the greatest opportunities for educational success. We understand that our children learn best through self-initiated activity; therefore, our learning activities reflect this philosophy.  Children selected as role models will participate in an age appropriate curriculum that will foster cognitive and social growth to promote development and independence.

We are accepting peer models provided they are 3 or 4 years old by December 31, 2021 and have passed the screening intake. Applications must be received by April 30, 2021 and the screening is scheduled for May 19, 2021 with the preschool team.Children will be selected based on strong language skills and appropriate social/peer interactions. Decisions will be based upon screening. Program specifics including tuition & transportation costs and schedules will be shared at the time of the screening. 

The application is available online on the Oxford Public School website under Pupil Personnel Services.  Please fill out the  application and email it to: OR mail the application to Oxford Public Schools, Pupil Personnel Services, 462 Oxford Road, Oxford, CT 06478 OR Please call 203-888-7754 x3 for further information.
