Lexington’s preschool program helps children develop a lifetime love of learning. Our sensory- rich curriculum focuses on language and communication, social-emotional and cognitive skills.
Learning to communicate is a vital part of a deaf child’s early education. Our classrooms utilize spoken language, speech-reading, auditory processing and sign language based on the child’s needs. Children are encouraged to use an amplification system - hearing aids, FM systems and/or cochlear implants. All preschool classrooms are equipped with a FM system for sound amplification.
Each classroom utilizes a research-based approach, Thinking Maps, to support learning. Thinking Maps are visual patterns linked to eight specific thought processes. By visualizing their thinking, children create concrete images that support critical and creative thinking.
Preschool students receive either individual and/or group speech therapy each week. Audiological evaluations and services are available from our on-site audiologists in the Lexington Hearing and Speech Center.
