District No-Cost Preschool and Kindergarten Registration For The 2023-2024 School Year
Posted on 03/01/2023
Plainville Community Schools is excited to offer another year of the district’s preschool program AT NO COST TO FAMILIES, according to Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Tawana Graham-Douglas.

The Plainville Community Schools’ NAEYC accredited preschool program is designed to prepare students for the transition to kindergarten at age five (5).  Children who will be four (4) years of age by 12/31/23 are eligible for preschool.  Children who will be five (5) years of age by 12/31/23 are eligible for the kindergarten program.

Preschool and kindergarten classes will follow the elementary school hours (8:50AM to 3:30PM) and the school district calendar beginning on Thursday, August 31, 2023.  Transportation for preschool and kindergarten students will be provided based on school district transportation guidelines for Plainville elementary schools. Students who live or attend private daycare or other child care programs outside of the designated busing zone for their school will not be provided with transportation.

Preschool class placement is on a first-come, first-served basis. If the preschool program reaches capacity, children will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which the completed registrations are submitted. Students on the waiting list may be offered a seat at a different school from their geographic “home school” and will need to provide their own transportation if they accept that seat. Registration information may be found on the school district website www.plainvilleschools.org under the Student Registration icon. If you are interested in registering your child for the 2023-2024 school year, please contact Central Registration at 860-793-6301, option 3.

Preschool and kindergarten orientations are held in May. Fully registered students will be invited to attend orientation this spring.

“We are excited to meet our newest students!” said Graham-Douglas.

“In Plainville Community Schools, we are proud of the robust and highly beneficial early educational experiences we are able to provide to our community. Over the years, we have sought ways to make these programs more and more accessible and attractive to all families seeking early learning programs. We are proud to be able to provide these high quality, fully accredited programs to all Plainville families at no cost to families again next year,” said Superintendent of Schools, Steven LePage.
