Preschool Information

  • Pre-Kindergarten is available to Uxbridge residents only.  The Taft Integrated Preschool Program has completed the 20-21 lottery.  Families will be notified over the next week of the placement their child was selected for.  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!

Child Screening

  • The Uxbridge Public Schools will be conducting a screening on January 30, 2020 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 Christine Veneziano 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.
