• Thank you for your interest in Taft Early Learning Center integrated Preschool!

    Preschool Lottery Applications for the 2024-25 school year are available starting on March 25, 2024 through April 12, 2024. The lottery will be conducted on April 24th. Families will be notified no later than May 3rd. Submit your application here.

    The Lottery is for students who will service as Peer Models/Community Peers ONLY. Students who receive services through an IEP are identified separately for enrollment in the Preschool program.

    The Preschool lottery system is a random selection process for determining which students will attend given the number of available seats in our program. The lottery system aims to give all applicants an equal chance of being admitted and occurs when more students apply for enrollment than seats available. All submitted lottery applicants names will be placed in a computer-generated randomization to ensure that the lottery is truly random and free of any human error. If chosen through the lottery, students will be assigned to their first choice unless full, then they will be assigned to their second choice indicated on the application. If all of the enrollment seats have become filled after the lottery, the students who were not selected will be added to a wait list. The lottery method will continue to determine in what order students will be put on the wait list. The wait list will be continuously updated as students are admitted and seats become available. 

    In order to submit a lottery application, the following conditions must be met:

    1.) You must be a resident of Uxbridge, MA

    2.) Your child must be at least three years of age by August 31, 2024 for the 2024-2025 school year.

    Please note that current Preschool students have already committed to their slots and do not need to complete a lottery application.
