About Our Program
We provide Tier One instruction to all students. We use a research-based curriculum that promotes teaching methodologies from early childhood experts in math, science, literacy, and social-emotional learning. We believe students learn best in self-directed environments enriched with discovery and play-based learning opportunities.

Specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parents, to meet the unique needs of children with disabilities. Areas of development may include cognitive, language/speech, motor, social/emotional, adaptive, hearing and vision.
The Individualized Education Program (IEP) team may determine a student needs related services to benefit from his/her early intervention program which may include transportation, speech
therapy, physical and occupational therapy, assistive technology, and hearing or vision support.
We provide services tailored to meet specific needs of qualifying students. We offer special education services through services by appointment at neighborhood schools and in inclusive classroom settings.
IEP Referral Process
- New Students: Students not currently enrolled in our program, parents and legal guardians may request a screening to identify areas of concern. Please fill out the referral form https://forms.gle/azAUMwd8u4BkHUJ37 to initiate a referral.
- After completing referral form, you will be contacted within 5 to 7 business days to schedule your child's screening.
- After the screening, a professional educator will review the results and discuss next steps.
- If additional assessments are required in order to determine eligibility under Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), an assessment date will be scheduled.
- Current Students: Students currently enrolled in one our preschool classrooms, please contact your child's teacher to discuss concerns.
After the completion of formal and informal evaluations;
- The IEP team will meet to review the assessments and determine if the child has a disability as defined under IDEA and would benefit from specialized instruction.
- When determining eligibility, the team must consider the 3 prongs:
1)Does the child have a disability as defined under IDEA?
2)Does the disability adversely affect their education?
3)Does the child require specialized instruction in order to access general education?
- If the team determines the student is eligible, they develop an IEP.
- Service delivery is determined by the IEP goals.
Child Find Notice
Tooele County School District is responsible for Child Find identification and evaluation for all students suspected of having a disability residing in Tooele County. This includes children (birth through 21 years of age) who are in public schools, and private schools, are being homeschooled, are preschoolers (birth to five years), and need an evaluation for possible special education or early intervention services. Early identification and intervention may be essential to your child’s development.
If your child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, and behavior, is experiencing slow development typical for his/her age, physical development, or learning difficulty, he/she may be a child with a disability that requires specialized instruction through special education. If your child’s three to five years, contact the TCSD Preschool Department at 435-833-1966.
