1. How do I enroll my child in preschool? The district offers a developmental preschool for children identified with special needs. If your child has not already been identified with a delay, the first step is to attend one of our monthly screenings (refer to screening calendar). The purpose of the screening is to identify children with potential delays in development who may require special education preschool services. If your child is already identified with delays and is or was receiving services with another district, contact the preschool psychologist to set up a meeting to continue services with Creighton District (refer to Angie Isaac 602-381-4600).
  2. Is this a Head Start? No, the district’s preschool program is a separate developmental preschool for children identified with special needs. The district works in collaboration with Head Start (please refer to Head Start flyer and/or call the interest list number for Head Start at 602-468-3431).
  3. My doctor told me my child needs an evaluation. Where do I go to make an appointment for an evaluation? Please contact the preschool psychologist and plan to attend one of our scheduled developmental screenings.
  4. My child’s preschool teacher/daycare provider has concerns about my child’s development. The teacher recommended I contact the school and request an evaluation. What do I need to do to have him/her tested?
