    Our vision is to create a warm, welcoming environment where we can teach children and families to love to learn by continually adjusting and adapting to meet their needs. We accomplish this by identifying their strengths, promoting their confidence, supporting independence, fostering communication, and forming positive relationships, which paves the way for a successful life and helps kids reach their full potential.

    Our goals are to address/meet the needs of all students by providing them:

    1. Functional Communication skills
    2. Ability to form relationships
    3. Achieve their highest level of independence
  • Example of a student communicating with a teacher.


  • Example of a student reading to herself.


  • Example of students playing together as friends.


  • Our mission is for all children to fully participate in age appropriate natural environments.


  • Before acceptance as a peer into the KIBSD preschool program, you and your child are required to attend an orientation session. Please contact Theresa Hubbard to make an appointment.

    If you have concerns about your child’s development or need to complete a screening for your child please email Program Director Kim Saunders.
