The speech and language development class is intended to provide specific, intensive language stimulation to a small group of children who have specific language impairment based on professional evaluation.

The teacher is specifically trained to instruct students with language difficulties. There is a lower pupil teacher ratio and the curriculum is adapted to provide learning materials that are stimulating and challenging for each child.

Children work in their class or in the resource room. The resource teacher, in collaboration with the classroom teachers, writes up the individualized education plan (IEP) that will best meet the learning style of the student with the understanding that success is not defined in the same way for everyone.

As part of the daycare program, students have access to a homework and tutoring program ye ar long. All parents have the option to register their children for the daycare program at a cost of $35.00 per week.
