Early Childhood Application Process

Carol P. Huebner Preschool, the ABRSD Early Childhood Program

2017-2018 Application Information

Thank you for your interest in the Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program. The district’s Early Childhood Program is currently located in two locations. Children living in Acton or Boxborough are eligible to apply and may attend school at either site based on space availability.

Given the number of parents interested in enrolling their children for September, admission for new students will occur through a lottery. Please submit applications between January 3rd and February 14th for inclusion in the lottery. The lottery will occur on February 15th and parents will be informed by the end of February of the results. The names of students for whom applications are submitted after February 14th will be added to the waiting list. No applications will be accepted prior to January 3rd. Visits to the program may be arranged upon request based on availability.

Located in bright attractive spaces, this inviting early childhood program serves children, ages 3 to 5 years old. We are an integrated early childhood program. Children who are developing typically and those with identified special education needs both learn side by side. The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices and the MA Curriculum Frameworks encouraging the growth of each child at his or her own individual pace. It is a fun place to play and learn!


Children must be three years old by September 1st to enroll. All classes meet four days per week, Monday-Thursday. The hours at the Acton Site for half day sessions will be 8:45-11:30 and 12:30-3:15; for full day sessions 8:45-3:15. At the Boxborough Site the hours for half day sessions are projected to be 8:40-11:25 and 11:25-3:10; for full day sessions 8:40-3:10. (Boxborough hours may adjust slightly to accommodate Elementary hours)

Administration is working towards aligning the length of the all day early childhood program hours with the elementary hours for the 2018-2019 school year.

Parents are responsible for providing transportation for their children
. The full tuition rate for the program is $3650 for half day and $7070 for full day. Tuition is paid over ten months beginning in August. 

Pre-registration will not be included in the lottery unless the following documentation is uploaded by February 14th.

  • A birth certificate (a copy is fine) or passport
