Preschool Application

Carol P. Huebner Preschool, the ABRSD Early Childhood Program

2015-2016 Application

Dear Parents, 

Thank you for your interest in the Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program. Although we are one program, for the coming school year classes will continue to meet in their current locations. Children living in both communities may apply and may attend school at either site based on space availability.

Given the number of parents interested in enrolling their children for September 2015 admission for new students will occur through a lottery. The lottery will occur on February 12th and parents will be informed in writing by the end of February of the results. Please submit applications between January 5th and February 11th for inclusion in the lottery. The names of students for whom applications are submitted after February 11th will be added to the waiting list. Applications must include a non-refundable application fee of $25 (checks to: Acton Boxborough Regional School District). No applications will be accepted prior to January 5th. 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 8:30-11:15 and 12:15-3:00; for full day sessions 8:30-3:00. Times of the program in Boxborough may adjust slightly.

Administration is working towards aligning the length of the all day early childhood program hours with the elementary hours for the 2016-2017 school year.


Parents are responsible for providing transportation for their children. The full tuition rate for the program for the 2015-2016 school year is $3530 for half day and $6830 for full day. Tuition is paid over ten months beginning in August. Information about a sliding fee scale is available upon request.

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

Sincerely,

Joseph Gibowicz
