About our Pre-School Division:
The Mobile County Public School System serves at-risk children and their families in preschool units, consisting of twenty (20) four-year-olds, a teacher, and an assistant that have been placed in Title I elementary school sites and the Just 4 Developmental Laboratory. Approximately 980 children are served in these units.

Preschool Philosophy:
We believe young children should be involved in direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, ideas, and events. Children’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development occurs naturally when they are engaged in active learning opportunities of exploration and discovery. Adults facilitate child-initiated activities that promote investigation, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, and problem solving.

 


Purpose:

The purpose of Preschool is to provide educationally disadvantaged students with readiness skills enabling them to be successful at the next developmental level.

The Preschool Program provides families and children with many experiences including:

 

 

  • Parental Involvement Opportunities

The Mobile County Public School System uses the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts to assess children's eligibility for participation in the Preschool Program. The Boehm Test of Basic Concepts-Preschool Version (Boehm-Preschool) is designed to measure a child's knowledge of twenty-six basic relational concepts considered necessary for achievement in the beginning years of school. These measured concepts are basic relational skills that help children understand and describe the world around them. Those children that demonstrate the greatest need are prioritized for participation in the program. A maximum of 20 students are served in each Preschool unit.
