Early Childhood Registration

Carol P. Huebner Preschool, the ABRSD Early Childhood Program

2021-2022 Application Information

Thank you for your interest in the Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program. While there is still some uncertainty about the year ahead due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proceeding with the 2021-2022 enrollment process.

Acton-Boxborough’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 currently available only on-line. Completed applications should be returned via email to cdipietro@abschools.org or via mail to: Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program Office, Administration Building, 15 Charter Rd in Acton.

Given the anticipated number of applications expected for September, admission for new students will occur through a lottery. Please submit applications between January 4th and February 11th for inclusion in the lottery. The lottery will occur on February 12th 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 waitlist. No applications will be accepted prior to January 4th. Depending on the status of the pandemic and health and safety metrics, visits to the program may be arranged at a later date.

Located in bright attractive spaces, this inviting early childhood program serves children, ages 3 to 5 years old. The early childhood program is an integrated learning environment. Children who are developing typically and those with identified special education needs 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. We are currently projecting all classes to meet four days per week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, however, this may need to be adjusted due to any district-wide schedule changes due to the pandemic. We understand that any change could create scheduling conflicts, so we will do our best to communicate any anticipated schedule changes as soon as possible. The hours at both locations (the Acton Site & Boxborough Site) are expected to be 8:30–11:15 and 12:15-3:00 for half day sessions; 8:30-3:00 for full day sessions.

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. Information about a sliding fee scale is available upon request. Tuition can be paid in full or over ten months. Deposits to secure seats are required by June 1st. When students gain admittance through the lottery process, families will be notified with instructions on how to proceed with pre-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.

Sincerely,
