Pre-K Registration Update as of April 29, 2020

    • We are pleased to announce that we have moved to online registration for the 2020-2021 school year.

    • If you are registering your child for the first time, you must complete the entire online registration process before your child is considered enrolled for 2020-2021.  Please click on the computer icon titled "Online Registration" located at the top right of our website.  Please remember to download (either here or during the online registration process) the required Health Care Provider form and submit to your school's nurse.

    • If your child was enrolled as a Pre-K student in 2019-2020 in either a private program or in our public school program, you only need to complete the 2020-2021 Tuition Request/Intent to Enroll form.  Please mail it or email it to Krista Metivier, Washington Central Unified Union School District, 1130 Gallison Hill Road, Montpelier VT 05602 or kmetivier@u32.org.

    • If you are a resident of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex or Worcester and registering for public Pre-K in your local elementary school, please complete the online registration process by Friday, May 15 if possible.  We will begin offering placements to students shortly thereafter.  Pre-K placements are first-come-first-served and space is limited.  If necessary, we will create a waitlist and will offer spots in our public Pre-K programs by random selection.

    • If you are not a resident of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex or Worcester please note that we prioritize residents and will not be able to offer an out-of-district placements until until we are sure that we have served all district Pre-K families who would like to enroll.

    • If you are a parent of a Pre-K student and you are registering for a private Pre-K program through Act 166, please note the following:

      WCUUSD registration form:
      -You must include at least one emergency contact who is not a parent or guardian.
      -Pre-K 3 is for students who are 3-years-old on or before September 1, 2020.  Pre-K 4 is for students who are 4- or 5-years old (5-years-old and not enrolled in Kindergarten) on or before September 1, 2020.

    • Feel free to direct any questions about Pre-K registration and/or Act 166 to Jen Miller-Arsenault, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, at jmillerarsenault@u32.org. Thank you.

Community Connections

  • Community Connections is a licensed Pre-Kindergarten program that is open at each of the five local schools to help meet the needs of families during the work week so that your child(ren) ages 3-5 years old may attend the school preschool or have childcare that works for your family’s weekly schedule.

    Community Connections has run programming for twenty (20) years and pre-Kindergarten eleven (11) of those years. Our staff is highly trained and we collaborate closely with the school staff to make Pre-K and all transitions a good experience for your child(ren).

    We operate every day that the school based pre-k programs are open. Each school has a slightly different schedule constructed around the hours the school based programs operate, as well as established around the availability of space and staff. Most schools have a full day/full week option of childcare for families.

    Please visit the Washington Central website (
    www.wcsu32.org ) for online Pre-Kindergarten Registration. I will be working with the district and schools to post the details for this fall through a link to Community Connections (CC) or to each school’s website for CC. That link will provide information that gives a complete schedule and cost for the services we provide.

    Stay safe and be well. We look forward to seeing you and your child in the fall.

    Sincerely,
