EEE Program Looking for Preschool-Aged Peers

The Colchester School District is looking for typically developing peers to participate in our Essential Early Education (EEE) program at Malletts Bay School.

Peers will model language, social communication, and play for students learning these skills. They will develop friendships while gaining confidence and school-readiness skills in a literacy-rich environment with experienced educators and support personnel.

Participating children must be between three and five years old, live in Colchester, and be able to attend four days per week for 2.5 hours each day.
The program hours are Tuesdays through Fridays 9:00–11:30 a.m. for the morning program and 12:15–2:45 p.m. for the afternoon program. There is no program on Mondays, and transportation will not be provided for participants.

Children will be screened prior to acceptance. The EEE Peer Screening is on Wednesday, June 1, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Malletts Bay School.
A representative from the EEE team will meet the participants in the MBS lobby.
