Pre-Kindergarten is available to Uxbridge residents only. Families will be notified of the outcome mid-February with further instructions. With the four-year-old classes, preference is given to returning students. Those not chosen through the lottery will be placed on a waiting list. After the initial registration process is complete, should any Pre-Kindergarten slots become available we will continue to take names from the waiting list. Many changes take place between the months of February and September. You still have a chance to get in!
The Uxbridge Public Schools will be conducting a screening on January 24, 2019 from 12:00-2:00 for
3 and 4 year old children who are residents of Uxbridge. If you have concerns about your child's speech and language, cognitive, fine motor, and/or gross motor skills, please contact Jennifer Ramsdell or Mariana Ravanales at the Taft Early Learning Center at (508) 278-8643 to schedule an appointment.
The brief Pre-Kindergarten screenings are schedule to give us an opportunity to “put a face with a name” and give us a quick look at your child’s speech and language skills and social interaction style. This is not a standardized screening so there is no “pass” or “fail”. Therefore, there will be no follow-up letter stating results. It is our expectation that most of the children will do just fine. If something is noted that we feel warrants a closer look in the fall, we will notify you. Otherwise “no news is good news”.
Parent Conferences/Progress Reports
Parent conferences are scheduled twice during the school year. These day and evening conferences are scheduled during Education Week in November and in June. Be aware that at any time you may have a question about your child’s progress, his/her teacher will be more than happy to schedule time to discuss your concerns.
First Day of School
In order to ease the adjustment into Pre-Kindergarten for your child we will hold an Open House. Dates and time will be posted later.
Tuition for the 2018-2019 two day program is $1,600 annually; three day program is $2,400 annually and for the five day program is $4,000 annually.

In case of tardy payments, a fee of $25 will be assessed. Failure to pay for the service (including late charges) by the end of the month (30 days) will result in termination of the service.
