At the Colonial Early Education Program (CEEP) at The Colwyck Center, we offer a preschool program for children ages three and four. ALL classrooms include and embrace children with and without identified disabilities.  Research and developmentally-appropriate practices confirm that the “Inclusion Model” is considered to be best practice. To view DE’s Early Childhood Inclusion Guide, please CLICK HERE. CEEP gives ALL enrolled children access to participate in age-appropriate learning opportunities and the supports necessary to do so.  

Students with disabilities attend for free and are offered free bus transportation. To register a child with and IEP, visit our main office. To make a referral for a special education evaluation, please contact Tammy Wales at (tamara.wales@colonial.k12.de.us).

CEEP is a Star Level 5 Program licensed by the DE Office of Child Care Licensing (OCCL).  All staff are certified by the DE Department of Education and DE First. All CEEP classrooms have a lead teacher, one or more paraeducators, and the support of occupational, physical, and speech/language therapists.  Student to staff ratios in each classroom follow OCCL regulations. 

The itinerant service providers, who are teachers and therapists, are housed at The Colwyck Center and at John G. Leach School.  Itinerant service providers work with children with identified disabilities at community preschools, child care centers, and Head Start centers.
