Early Child Development & Learning: Birth-Five

NEW for 2023-2024 School Year!

Early Childhood Peer Model Program

Southern Door is seeking a limited number of typically developing 3-year-olds to join our Early Childhood Special Education program as peer role models for the 2023-24 school year!  Our goal is that the addition of these peers will help to build language, social, and play skills within the classroom, while developing long lasting friendships. A morning or afternoon session will be offered 4 days per week. There is no tuition for this program, however standard Elementary Materials Fees apply, and parents must provide daily transportation for their child to and from school.

** Please Note: Spaces are limited. Staff will make Admissions decisions based on the best fit for Early Childhood students. Southern Door County School District reserves the right to dismiss any Peer Model who is not able to act as a role model child within the program. We reserve the right to discontinue the Peer Model program, either temporarily or long-term, in the event that the services/support needs of our Early Childhood students change or otherwise exceed our staffing ability to include Peer Model children in the classroom.
