Project Discovery offers a free universal pre-kindergarten
program for all Port Jervis students the year prior to entering
Kindergarten, and integrated preschool classes to all children
with special needs.
This unique Easter Seals program provides special education
services, including speech and language therapy, occupational
therapy, physical therapy and counseling to special needs
preschoolers within the regular education environment, while
simultaneously providing a rich and stimulating preschool
curriculum for general education students.
The curriculum incorporates the Easter Seals Early Childhood Development philosophy, with the Special Education goals and objectives of the Port Jervis School District. The expertise of district teachers, and the creativity of the staff at Project Discovery, bring unique and essential elements to the program.
Classrooms are bright and colorful, full of language development and language stimulation. The program promotes a nurturing atmosphere where the possibilities for student exploration and “hands-on” learning are endless.
Project Discovery also meets the needs of the community. Parent education classes, social work assistance, links to medical agencies, and nutritional counseling are important components of the program.
