Archild Preschool Services

Developmental & Regular Preschool Programs 

Archild’s EIDT program covers the following learning domains: Cognitive, Self-Help, Social-Emotional, Fine and Gross Motor.

Our teacher assistants work under the guidance of our early childhood and special education teachers to deliver individualized educational programming to meet each child’s individual needs while maximizing their abilities.

In addition to providing EIDT services for children with special needs, Archild is certified as a Level Two Arkansas Better Beginnings childcare provider.

We offer regular daycare with both private pay and voucher options. Archild’s comprehensive classroom curriculum is based on the Adventures in Learning model, which features 40 topics of study in nine focus areas.

Each topic is introduced with familiar children’s books and has a strong language and literacy emphasis.

Here’s what parents have to say…

My favorite thing about Archild is that they are an integrated school. This allows my son to be interactive and learn alongside typically developing peers his age, and he’s not treated differently. Archild focuses on children’s abiliteis who just happen to have disabilities!
