The Integrated Preschool Description is a multi-disciplined, diverse learning opportunity for young children. Our early childhood team of special educator educators, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech/language therapists and various support personnel provides a array of early childhood services to eligible and tuition students within an integrated preschool model. Curriculum standards are well established by the MA State Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences and well aligned with our preschool's Opening The World to Learning (OWL) curriculum found at Pearson OWL 2011.
Sudbury residents with students ages 3 & 4 (a/o Oct 1st) may apply as tuition preschool students. Applications will be processed on 'First-come/First-served' basis beginning on November 16, 2012. If interested in an integrated preschool application, please download Preschool Application Form or call the Early Childhood Office at (978) 639-3204 and return to the Early Childhood Office, 40 Fairbank Road, Sudbury, MA.

"Kindergarten is a critical year for all children – a year of transition from preschool or home to formal schooling. Most children arrive in kindergarten filled with curiosity, wonder and an enthusiasm to learn about themselves, others, and the world...
...students who see themselves as competent learners tackle challenges with confidence, and develop attitudes and dispositions that encourage their curiosity and eagerness to learn."

The Sudbury Public Schools is pleased to offer both Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK 6 hours) and Half-Day Kindergarten (HDK 2.5 hours) program options. FDK is a $3250/year fee-based program with a sliding scale available as needed, while HDK is offered without a fee.
Kindergarten registration begins with a preliminary mailing in mid November for children who turn age five on or before October 1st (of the following year). A pre-registration packet is mailed to families listed on the Sudbury census followed by an electronic link e-mailed to families with more detailed registration documents.
During the preliminary registration phase, parents are asked to share their preference for FDK or HDK, which will assist in district planning. Over the past few years, family preference for FDK has grown from 60% to 85%, resulting this year in eleven FDK classrooms and two morning HDK programs housed at the Haynes and Noyes schools. Both are morning sessions, with all students returning to their home districts next year for first grade.
As we plan for the upcoming year, with enrollments varying and family preferences changing, the Sudbury Schools reserves the right to finalize class enrollments via lottery if needed (in February 2013). Such a lottery would be used only if interest were to exceed the number of eligible spots at any given school.
Please note that the kindergarten registration process requires your child's original birth certificate, family proof of residency and current immunological record.
