Framingham Public Schools in collaboration with our community partners, the MetroWest YMCA and Framingham State University Centers for Early Childhood Education, are offering a brand new Preschool Expansion Program.
This partnership will be enrolling 4 year-old children who’ve not yet had access to early learning opportunities and provides access to high quality pre-k education before they start Kindergarten next year.
The program begins in early 2022 and offers financial assistance based on family need.
For more information please contact Christina Shea, Early Education Manager at 508-782-6898. More to come on this exciting partnership and opportunity!
