District No Cost PreSchool: Registration for the 2021-2022 School Year
Posted on 03/10/2021
The Plainville Community Schools Preschool Program is excited to offer a pilot school year (2021-2022) of preschool programming for children who will be four (4) years of age by 12/31/21 AT NO COST TO FAMILIES as a result of COVID-19 grant relief funding for school districts. We will begin accepting registrations on Monday, March 15, 2021 through our Central Registration Office. This NAEYC accredited preschool program is designed to prepare students for the transition to kindergarten at age five (5). 
Also this month, parents are encouraged to register their children who will be five (5) years of age by 12/31/21 for our kindergarten program. Our preschool classes will follow the school district calendar and school hours for all three elementary schools, which are 8:50 AM to 3:30 PM.  Due to COVID-19 issues impacting attendance and a decrease in enrollment, the State of Connecticut postponed the required student increase at Wheeler Elementary School from this year. However; the requirement of adding more students to the newly renovated Wheeler Elementary School remains in place and must be met by October 2021. If we do not fulfill this requirement, the district must attain enrollment of 352 students in order to be fully reimbursed for the state’s portion of the renovation project. Failure to meet this requirement would result in substantial losses, so we are required to meet this requirement. Therefore, the preschool students from the Linden district will continue to attend preschool at Wheeler School in the Fall, 2021. 
Note: Bus transportation will be provided for all Linden preschool students who will be attending Wheeler School. Transportation for preschool students other than those from the Linden School district will be provided based on district transportation guidelines for our elementary schools. Students who live outside of the designated busing zone for their school will not be provided with transportation.
Registrations will be accepted through our Central Registration Office on a first-come, first-served basis. If the program reaches capacity, your child will be placed on our waiting list in the order in which the completed registrations are submitted. Registration information may be found on the school district website: www.plainvilleschools.org under the Student Registration icon. Parents may also call Central Registration at 860-793-6301, option 3.
