Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)

Edgewood has ECSE classrooms at Stafford Early Childhood Center, Jose Cardenas Early Childhood Center and Loma Park Elementary. These classrooms give preschool children who have qualified for special education services much-needed early help to get ready for kindergarten and grade levels beyond. Our ECSE classrooms are led by certified special education preschool teachers who provide nurturing support for children ages 3 to 5 in a variety of settings which may include a combination of general education and special education students. Placement in a specific PPCD setting depends on evaluation results and Admission, Review, and Dismissal committee recommendations.
