The Pre-Kindergarten Exceptional Student Education Preschool is for children with disabilities and is operated through Sarasota County Schools. The ESE preschool program is available at multiple school sites. Students must be 3 years old to qualify for the ESE Preschool program. The school based program operates during regular school hours, consistent with the school year calendar. School bus transportation is provided to the assigned school.
