Welcome to Olentangy Special Needs Preschool Program

The Olentangy School District offers a program that services children with disabilities and provides an educational opportunity for typically developing children to serve as peer role models.

The classes are in session Tuesday through Friday in the morning or afternoon. Each class has an intervention specialist and an assistant. There are up to 7 children with special needs ages 3-5 and 7 peer role models in our integrated classrooms.
Applications for Peer Models for the 2017-2018 school year are now being accepted.
To print the Olentangy Preschool Peer Application, please click here.
Applications will be processed as first-received, first-placed. Final class assignments will be communicated by July 21, 2017.
