    Are you interested in our role model program?  The Role Model Preschool Program is part of Nixa's Early Childhood, specifically the Early Childhood Special Education program. The program serves preschool children with disabilities. The Role Model Program provides typically developing children an opportunity to interact with same age peers who are receiving specialized instruction in a developmentally appropriate preschool classroom. Role model students provide positive peer-interactions; demonstrate play skills, and model appropriate speech/language and behavior for children with special needs. Role models are selected based on the specific needs of the classroom and not on a first come, first serve basis. Students will be added even after the school year has started. All role model students are accepted on a trial basis and may be dismissed at any time.
