FOCUS AND MISSION 

Penn PALS Community Preschool mission is: Serving youngsters with special needs in an inclusive setting with their general education preschool peers. We educate both Exceptional and General Education preschool students side-by-side, supporting the Exceptional Ed students with the appropriate challenge, support, and accommodation.

PALS stands for Promoting Academic Learning Skills to reflect the program’s focus on educational readiness. Some other words to describe the Penn PALS experience are IMAGINE, EXPLORE, and ENGAGE! Youngsters who attend Penn PALS Community Preschool at P-H-M learn and grow! 

 

 

Penn-Harris-Madison offers free speech and language screenings for three, four, and five-year-old children who reside within P-H-M boundaries

 

 


CURRICULUM

To promote kindergarten readiness for students, we will provide a curriculum crucial for development that includes cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language activities, in an atmosphere conducive to academic and social engagement. 

 

We will continue to utilize the Early Learning Foundations outlined by the state of Indiana that are based on Kindergarten academic standards. Classrooms embrace the SPARK, Everyday Mathematics, and Fundations curriculum to create meaningful lessons.

 

PennPALS Community Preschool is a half-day program. It is only open to P-H-M resident students (students must live within the P-H-M district).
