Early Essential Education (EEE)
The Montpelier Essential Early Education Program serves Montpelier children, ages 3 years old up to the sixth birthday, who have a developmental delay, medical condition, or other disability defined under state regulations and need special education. Through EEE, these children and their families may receive a range of early intervention services at no cost to the parent, such as assessment, speech/language, occupational and physical therapy, individualized assistance in the classroom, and developmental teaching.
Referrals to EEE come from many community sources, including parents, physicians, visiting nurses, and childcare providers. Twice a year, the EEE Staff sponsor a Child Development Information Day, where parents are invited to talk with EEE Staff about any developmental concerns they may have about their children and participate in a play observation session in the preschool classrooms.
The Montpelier EEE Staff is currently housed with the Family Center of Washington County at 383 Sherwood Drive. Children receiving EEE often attend the Family Center Preschool, where a play-based developmental curriculum and an interdisciplinary teaching team offer opportunities for play with peers and many hands-on activities to build social/emotional, communicative, motor, and pre-academic skills. The Family Center offers many activities for families, including Montpelier play groups, where EEE staff members are available as well. The EEE Staff also serve children at our other preschool partners in Montpelier. If you suspect your child has a significant developmental delay, you may call our staff at 802-262-3292 ext. 166.
