Early Childhood Application Process

Carol P. Huebner Preschool, the ABRSD Early Childhood Program

2018-2019 Application Information

Dear Parents,

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. Applications are available at the Administration Building, 15 Charter Rd in Acton or on-line. Completed applications should be returned to: Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program Office, Administration Building, 15 Charter Rd in Acton.

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 2nd 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. Students who do not gain admittance through the lottery will be added to the wait list. No applications will be accepted prior to January 2nd. 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 12:25-3:10; for full day sessions 8:40-3:10. (Boxborough hours may adjust slightly to accommodate Elementary hours)

Parents are responsible for providing transportation for their children. The full tuition rate for the program is currently $3650 for half day and $7070 for full day. A slight tuition fee increase may occur for next school year. Information about a sliding fee scale is available upon request. Tuition is paid over ten months beginning in August.

When students gain admittance through the lottery process, families will be notified with instructions on how to proceed with registration.

If you have any questions please contact Corinne DiPietro at 978-264-4700 x3948, cdipietro@abschools.org or email me at jgibowicz@abschools.org. We look forward to working with you and your child.
