Welcome to Edgewood School! We are proud to serve families in the Prior-Lake Savage community as the Administrators of Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools (PLSAS) Early Learning Programs. Edgewood School serves as a one-stop-shop early learning center. Here you will find Early Childhood Screening, Early Childhood & Family Education (ECFE) classes, Circle of Friends Preschool classes and Early Childhood Special Education Services.
At Edgewood School, we believe social-emotional development is essential to school readiness. Through the Pyramid Model Innovation, which is a precursor to the Positive Behavioral Intervention & Support (PBIS) program practiced in our elementary and secondary schools, we support the development of these skills through positive relationships, a focus on what TO do (instead of what NOT to do), consistent expectations and self-regulation strategies.
We also strongly believe that a child’s family is their first and most important teacher. We value a whole-family approach to learning. Through the Evidence-Based Intervention Practices Innovation, our Birth to Three team provides intervention that is routine-based and driven by family needs. We also have an amazing, Early Learning Advisory Council made up of program parents and caregivers.
One of the most important aspects of our work at Edgewood is building strong relationships with students, teachers, families and the community. We believe in shared leadership and are excited to partner with all of you. You’ll find us in the hallways, classrooms and on the playground getting to know our program. We both have an open-door policy and welcome your input and ideas.
We hope you find what your family is looking for at Edgewood School. Please reach out with any questions. We are always happy to help!
