Carol P. Huebner Preschool, the ABRSD Early Childhood Program

2024-2025 Application Information

Thank you for your interest in the Carol Huebner Early Childhood Program!  The early childhood program serves children ages 3 to 5 years old and will be housed in the brand new Boardwalk Campus School located in West Acton.  The early childhood program is an integrated learning environment; children who are developing typically and those with identified special education needs learn side by side. The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices and the MA Curriculum Frameworks encouraging the growth of each child at his or her own individual pace. Our program is a fun place to play and learn!

Children must be three years old by September 1st to enroll. We are currently projecting all classes to meet four days per week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday.  The hours are expected to be 8:15–11:00 and 12:00-2:45 for half day sessions; 8:15-2:45 for full day sessions.  Times could be adjusted slightly due to district-wide schedule changes. 

Parents are responsible for providing transportation for their children. The tuition rates for the 2023-24 school year are $3650 for half day and $7070 for full day.  A tuition increase is expected for the 2024-25 school year as rates have not been increased since FY'18.  Tuition rates are expected to be announced in March of 2024.  Information about a sliding fee scale is available upon request. Tuition can be paid in full or over ten months. Deposits to secure seats are required by May 1st. When students gain admittance through the lottery process, families will be notified with instructions on how to proceed with pre-registration.

If you have any questions, please contact CHECP office at 978-266-2530 x25118, or email me at [email protected] . We look forward to working with you and your child.
