The Inclusion Program at Peachtree Presbyterian Preschool is unique; children with special rights learn side-by-side with typical peers. A trained inclusion teacher facilitates the curriculum, interaction, and play. Children with special rights accomplish more than their families ever dreamed possible by learning alongside typical peers. The Inclusion Program also has a tremendous impact on the typical children as they learn about differences, collaboration, and acceptance at a very young age, building a foundation of empathy.
Research has shown inclusive education to have lasting and life-long positive implications for everyone involved. This life-changing program is fully funded and supported by the Preschool families and generous donors from the community.

“The Preschool has opened Teddy up to a world where he is wanted, engaged, and extraordinarily happy, and has changed all of our lives for the better. I will be eternally grateful for this program.”
“Every child deserves this kind of education: strong, supportive, connected, creative. This kind of education empowers children and each empowered child makes the world a brighter place.”
