Early Childhood Education

Special Education for Ages 3-5

The Oregon School District provides an Early Childhood (EC) program that offers special education services to children age 3 to 5 based on Wisconsin's eligibility criteria. Services are free to families with children who qualify. EC students may attend our district’s 4-year-old Kindergarten program or be served at one of our community locations with additional supports. Learn more about our 4-year-old kindergarten on our Ready for Learning page.

If you are concerned about your child’s vision, hearing, moving, talking, play, learning, behaviors, or if he or she has a medical diagnosis that affects development, please contact Marcia Walker (608-835-4034) to schedule an evaluation.
