Integrated Preschool Program

The Shared Services Integrated Preschool Program (SSIPP) is an integrated preschool program serving the needs of children ages 3 to 5 in the towns of Barkhamsted, Colebrook, Hartland and Norfolk. The program is located at the Barkhamsted School and follows the Barkhamsted School calendar.

A screening is offered in March for parents who have concerns regarding their child’s development. The screening process helps to identify children who may need intervention to perform successfully in school.  Identified children will qualify to become a participant in the Shared Services Preschool Program.
Parents who are interested in having their child attend Shared Services Integrated Preschool Program as a role model may also submit their child’s name in March.  In the event that there are more applicants than slots a lottery will be held.
To be eligible for the program, children must live in Barkhamsted, Colebrook, Hartland, or Norfolk; be age 3 by September 1; and must have attended the screening.  The lottery will be held in mid March and parents will be notified.
 Please call Shared Services at (860) 379-8583 if you have further questions regarding the Integrated Preschool Program.
