At this point in time, the Lansing School District does not offer a general education preschool. The Lansing School District does, however, offer a peer modeling program in its special education early childhood classrooms. Students must go through the child find screening to be considered for the peer-model program. There is a monthly cost. A calendar for Child Find can be found here.
