Preschool Registration

    The Gloucester Preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year.  The program provides developmentally appropriate early childhood education services and support for three and four year old children and their families. The preschool serves a diverse population of children with a wide range of abilities, needs and backgrounds, within a safe and nurturing environment that builds on the strengths of each child.

    Gloucester provides integrated classrooms in which children that have been identified as having special needs learn along side typically developing peers. The program follows a typical preschool curriculum and makes adaptations for the individual needs of all the children. Intensive classrooms are for 3 and 4 year old children with significant special needs. This is a self-contained program with a low student-teacher ratio. Class sizes are small with a maximum of fifteen students in each class. There is a licensed teacher and one or two highly qualified assistants in each of the classrooms.

    Gloucester Preschool classes are Monday-Thursday. The integrated classrooms have two sessions each. The morning session runs 8:30-11:00 and the afternoon session runs 12:00-2:30. There is an optional Lunch Bunch session from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. that allows families to extend a child’s preschool day by one hour.  Self contained classrooms run 8:30-1:30. The Preschool follows the same school calendar as the Gloucester Public Schools.

To receive more information about the program or to schedule a visit please contact the preschool at (978) 281-9848.
