Tri-County Preschool Open House and Registration for 2020-21 to be held January
Registration and Open House for the Tri-County Children’s Center preschool program for 2020– 2021 will be held on Thursday, January 30th, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and Friday, January 31st, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Tri-County Regional High School in Franklin at 147 Pond Street.

Placement is limited to residents of the 11 towns within the Tri-County District, Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole and Wrentham. Admission is decided through a lottery system. Registration will be made open to other towns if spaces are not filled by residents within the district.
The random drawing to determine which of the children registered will be enrolled will take place on Friday, March 6, 2020. The number of children registered has traditionally far exceeded the number of spaces available so the random drawing was established. Those names not selected in the drawing are placed on a waiting list.
Birth certificates for children being registered must accompany all registration forms. Registration is limited to those children who are at least age 3 years by September 15, 2020 for the three-day program. A $25.00 non-refundable registration fee is due at registration time. Enrollment is limited to two years or part of two years for the preschool program, as long as the child is age eligible.
Preschool sessions are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:50 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. for the three-day program. Tuition is $36.00* per week. Class size is limited to 30 children.
Three teachers in the Tri-County Early Education Program supervise the programs, and are assisted by students in the Early Education Major.
