Parents of preschool-aged children (ages 3 -5) often have questions about their child’s development. To help answer those questions, the Olathe Public Schools offer screenings. The areas screened include: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, personal/social, self-help, vision and hearing.
Parents may request a screening by calling Harmony Early Childhood Center at (913) 780-7015 or Heartland Early Childhood Center at (913) 780-7410.
The fee-based peer application packet is available starting in January for the following school year. Peer participation slots are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis.
The definition of “peer” for the Early Childhood Disabilities peer participation slots: includes children who do not have, or are not suspected of having, a disability. Eligibility to be considered, or to maintain status as a peer, requires meeting this definition.
If you would like information regarding the federally-funded, low income-based Head Start or Jump Start preschool programs, please contact us at (913) 780-7418 for application information.
