P.O.P.P.I.E. Pre-K


Pike Road City Schools P.O.P.P.I.E. (Preparing Our Preschool Patriots In Every Way) program provides a developmentally appropriate, inclusive environment for students with and without disabilities. The program uses a research-based preschool curriculum to provide the basic framework for language rich skill-based instruction using age appropriate learning activities. Our goal is to provide a balanced variety of developmentally appropriate experiences designed to foster learning and social development for all children.


Students who exhibit at least a 25% delay in two or more developmental areas and have qualified for Special Education services may be placed in the P.O.P.P.I.E. program at ages 3 or 4 as determined by their Individualized Education Program (IEP) team. The five developmental areas are Adaptive skills, Personal-Social skills, Communication skills, Motor skills and Cognitive skills. If you think your child may have a disability or a significant delay in one or more of these areas, please contact
