Monomoy Integrated Preschool

The Monomoy Integrated Preschool Program strives to maximize the achievement of all of our students. We provide our students with high-quality social, language, and early academic experiences, which address each child’s individual needs in an emotionally and physically safe environment. We follow developmentally appropriate best practices for young children of all abilities by providing a standards-based curriculum. Preschool children ages 3-4 who have been found eligible for special education services due to a disability learn alongside more typically developing students whom we call community friends. Our community friends help to model age-appropriate social, play, language and learning skills. 


  • Students with a suspected disability are identified through a screening process by our educators. If there is a concern, the parent will be notified and a referral for an evaluation to determine special education eligibility will be discussed. Children are referred to the program at any point by parent inquiry, teacher recommendation, physician recommendation, child care provider recommendation, Early Intervention, and more. If you have concerns about your child’s development, contact Janet Caron at 508-430-7216 or to schedule a screening at any time.
  • Community friends: All community friend spots are now full for the 2024-2025 school year. Please call Chatham Elementary School (508-945-5135) or Harwich Elementary School (508-430-7216) to be placed on the waitlist.
  • The number of community friends that can be enrolled is dependent on a variety of factors and is not guaranteed. 
  • To enroll in the integrated preschool program for the 2024-2025 school year, children must be 3 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2024; be able to provide a birth certificate and copy of required immunizations; and provide proof of residence in Chatham or Harwich. 
  • If the number of community friend applicants exceeds the available spots, a lottery will be held.
