The Indian River School District Early Learning, offers integrated preschool programs for children ages three and four. Classrooms include children with identified disabilities as well as children without identified disabilities.  Based on research and developmentally-appropriate practice, this “inclusion” model of programming, where children with and without disabilities are educated together, is considered to be best practice. By implementing the inclusion model, IRSD Early Learning gives ALL children access to participate in age-appropriate learning opportunities, and the supports necessary to do so.
We are excited to provide your child with a high-quality, enriching, early childhood experience! The Indian River School District is pleased to welcome your child to the beginning of adventures in learning and cooperating with other children. The variety of experiences will develop your child’s confidence and excitement towards learning.
This website offers information on the screening process (Child Find), steps to getting started, application process and many resources for parents. We hope to facilitate Early Learning process and help parents become their child's advocate.

Remote Learning Plan
Plan de aprendizaje Remoto

The Indian River School District is committed to providing continued learning to all of our students. Weekly we will post activities where students will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful activities with pre-school teachers and staff across the district to reinforce learned concepts. We recognize that parents/families may face many obstacles throughout this process and so we want to be flexible in our approach. Our “remote” learning plan is designed so families will have a variety of activities each week centered around various skills. Daily we ask that you watch a short instructional video from one of our pre-kindergarten teachers within each concept (ELA, Math, Social/Language). Although you will find many activities that correlate with the instructional activity, we ask that you select one with your child. We hope you find the activities as a valuable instruction opportunity for your child.

El distrito escolar de Indian River se compromete a proporcionar el aprendizaje continuo a todos nuestros estudiantes. Semanalmente publicaremos actividades donde los estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de participar en actividades significativas con maestros y personal de preescolar en todo el distrito para reforzar los conceptos aprendidos. Reconocemos que los padres / familias pueden enfrentar muchos obstáculos a lo largo de este proceso, por lo que queremos ser flexibles en nuestro enfoque. Nuestro plan de aprendizaje "remoto" está diseñado para que las familias tengan una variedad de actividades cada semana centradas en varias habilidades. Diariamente le pedimos que vea un breve video instructivo de uno de nuestros maestros de prejardín de infantes dentro de cada concepto (ELA, Matemáticas, Social / Idioma). Aunque encontrará muchas actividades que se correlacionan con la actividad educativa, le pedimos que seleccione una con su niño. Esperamos que encuentre las actividades como una valiosa oportunidad de instrucción para su hijo.
