SWL Early Learning Center - Registration

Early Learning Center (Preschool) Application

The SWL Early Learning center is a Preschool for Special Education (PSE), which means that we have a student population that consists of students with disabilities and peer models. We aim to individualize programming to each student throughout the year tailored at their own pace, so that their learning experience is focused on their developing needs and skills.  Parents interested in applying for our Early Learning Center preschool can follow the steps below.  Complete information about the ELC Preschool is available HERE (click).
