Specialized training or experience serving children: While you may be familiar with Willamette ESD (WESD), Preschool Promise under WESD's Early Learning Department is a separate program from Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE). Like all other Preschool Promise classrooms, those under the Early Learning Department at WESD are general education settings and are not a special education placement. The Preschool Promise classrooms are guided by the belief that children learn best through play and practice. Classrooms are facilitated by an instructor and an instructional assistant with up to 18 children. The program will operate Monday-Friday from 9:30-3:30, except Wednesday's 9:30-1:30 with scheduled closures for holidays, staff development and parent/teacher conferences. Because healthy habits are important to development, time for rest, movement, and self-care (handwashing and restroom) are built into each day. Nutritious snacks and lunch are also provided free of charge. Our program uses evidence-based curriculum, student interest and a strength-based approach to build kindergarten readiness skills. In partnership with our families, we aim to create a safe, welcoming, and positive classroom culture that provides opportunities for children to thrive.
