PreK Expansion Program
Framingham residents who have a child or children who will be four years old by August 31, 2023 and that child is not enrolled in an early childhood program due to lack of access, resources, finances or opportunity, families are encouraged to take a moment to learn about Partnerships for Early Learners (PEL).
Through this partnership, Framingham Public Schools is working with our BLOCKS Preschool, the MetroWest YMCA and Framingham State University – Centers for Early Childhood Education to offer PreK learning opportunities for Framingham-based families whose four year old children are not currently enrolled in an early childhood program due to lack of access, resources, finances or opportunity.
The program runs from September 2023 – June 2024. Interested families are invited to submit the PreK Intake Form and will need to meet eligibility criteria for acceptance. If the interest exceeds the available openings, a lottery will take place to fill these PreK spots for children to attend before entering Kindergarten in September 2024.

- Mondays: 8:00am – 6:00pm
