Worcester preschool and kindergarten registration now open!

If you have someone in your house who will be five by December 31, 2015, they can be registered for kindergarten now at the Parent Information Center (508-799-3194) at 768 Main Street. Please bring proof of the child's date of birth, proof of the child's immunization and test for lead, and proof of residency (a utility bill will do it). Kindergarten in Worcester is full day. Visitors to kindergartens are welcome:
  • South Quadrant - Week of February 3, 2014
  • North Quardrant - Week of February 10, 2014
  • Doherty Quadrant - Week of February 10, 2014
  • Burncoat Quadrant - Week of February 27, 2014
(if you don't know what quadrant you're in, the list is here
Remember that Worcester has school choice on a space available basis. We run magnet programs (in particular) at Jacob Hiatt and Worcester Arts, and a bilingual (Spanish/English) program at Roosevelt and Chandler Magnet. I'd recommend visiting!
