WCUUSD PreK and Kindergarten
Registration, Meet & Greet, and Screening
Registration for Pre-K 3 is for students who are 3 years old on or before September 1, 2023.
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, 2023, from the towns of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, and Worcester.
Kindergarten is for children who turn age 5 on or before September 1, 2023. If your child attends one of our district's public Pre-K programs, they are already registered for Kindergarten in our district.
Please go to our website at www.wcsu32.org and follow the directions after clicking the icon titled "Online Registration" which is located on the upper right-hand side of our website.
If registering for public Pre-K in your local elementary, we strongly encourage families to register their children by March 17 or as soon as possible so that we can make informed decisions about programming and staffing needs as well as offer timely placements for families.
IMPORTANT: While registration is ongoing, returning students are offered a placement first. Placement priority is then given to incoming 4-year-olds who have registered by March 17 in order of registration date. All other Pre-K placements are first come first served and space is limited in all of our programs. We will begin offering placements to students in the late Spring. All registration paperwork must be completed before a placement will be offered, this includes the PK Health Examination Form which requires a doctor's signature.
WCUUSD offers childcare options through Community Connections in order to increase access to public Pre-K programs. CC programs take place before or after our school-based programs.
PLEASE NOTE: In the coming school year, WCUUSD will offer uniform Pre-Kindergarten across the district on the same days of the week, Tuesday through Friday, for 2.5 hours per day/10 hours per week.
Community Connections works to support the school-based programs and makes every effort to offer at least a full day of care for each Pre-k school day. When enrollment allows and staffing is available CC offers a full week of care for families.
Please contact Kim Bolduc, Coordinator of Early Education and Expanded Learning Opportunities at Kbolduc@u32.org or 223-7936 Ext. 305 if you have any questions regarding Pre-Kindergarten, Act 166, or Community Connections before or aftercare options.
