Preschool Reception & Diagnostic Services
Referrals to Richmond Public Schools (RPS) Preschool Reception & Diagnostic Services team can be made at any time when there is a concern about a child’s development. The child must be between the ages of birth to five years. Referrals to the Preschool Services team come from early intervention (Part C), doctor’s offices, health departments, social services, other schools or school personnel, parents and other school systems. If the child is enrolled in a RPS preschool program (Head Start or VPI), located within one of the preschool centers (Maymont, Blackwell, Summer Hill, Mary Scott, and MLK), that school team will receive and review the information presented in the referral.
