PRESCHOOL

At the Monson Public School Preschool Program, it is our mission to create a positive, safe environment where all children feel comfortable and are inspired to become lifelong learners. We provide activities that guide students toward successful levels of ability in fine motor, gross motor, social behavioral, and language development.

The Preschool Program at the Early Childhood Center is designed for children between the ages of three and five. Each integrated session and child development class has a maximum of 15 children.

Please use the link below to pre-register your child for Preschool or Kindergarten.  If your child is already enrolled in the district, you will not need to register.  In order to register for Kindergarten in the Monson Public Schools, a child must attain the age of five by August 31st prior to the start of school in September.  The following documents are required to register:  Physical examination within one year prior to the start of school, complete immunization history signed by a doctor, certified birth certificate from city or town of birth, and proof of lead screening.

COMMUNICATION

We believe it is important to have two-way communication between teachers and families. Throughout the year, conferences will be held to discuss progress. Also, reports will be sent home three times per year.

CURRICULUM

Our current curriculum follows the Common Core Standards for ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The use of technology is encouraged within the classroom. We use a variety of instructional approaches including whole group, small group, and independent instruction.
