Peer Application Process

  • Plymouth Early Childhood Center's integrated preschool programs include children with and without special needs. Children without diagnosed learning needs are considered Peer Models.  An application is required for all peer models.  All peer models must be toilet trained in order to enroll in our program. Children must be 3 years old by September 1 of the school year they are applying for.

    Due to the large number of applicants and limited number of openings, students for the program will be chosen by a lottery.   All applicants will receive a letter via email in March, if they are chosen or are put on a waiting list.

    • January:  Enrolled students receive a letter in their backpack asking if they are interested in returning.
    • January-February:  Applications accepted from the community.
    • March:  Lottery is conducted and families are notified by email
    • April: Families of accepted students need to confirm enrollment.
    • May:  Parent Orientation and tour of the school.
    • May:  Registration paperwork and deposit due for new students.

Peer Model Application

  • The 2023-2024 Peer Lottery is now closed. All lottery applicants will be notified by email on Friday March 17, 2023 if your child is accepted. If your child is not accepted, they will automatically be put on the waitlist.  

    We are no longer accepting Peer lottery applications for the 2023-2024 school year. To be considered for our waitlist, please click this link and complete the form. Please note that children have to be three years old on or before September 1, 2023 to be considered. Removal from the waitlist is based on availability and changes in the accepted students' circumstances. You will be notified if your child has been accepted off of the waitlist as spots become available throughout the Spring and Summer months

    (If you have already entered the lottery, but were not selected, you do not need to fill this out. Your name will automatically be added to the waitlist, unless you notify us that you refuse to be added. These Acceptance/Waitlist letters will be emailed on March 17, 2023).
    If your child is accepted off the waitlist, a $50 deposit will be required to hold your spot once you are notified of your child's acceptance.
    Tuition is based on $12.50 per day and additional children are $6.25 per day.



Returning Peers

  • Community peers currently enrolled are eligible for the following year due to consistency and the establishment of the relationship with children with special needs.  Letters will be sent home in January to every student currently enrolled. Please return these letters indicating if your child will be returning.
