Participant Information

Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education regulations require that all schools determine the languages spoken in each student's home in order to identify their specific language needs. This information is essential in order for schools to provide meaningful instruction for all students. If a language other than English is spoken in the home, the District is required to do further assessment of your child. Please help us meet this important requirement by answering the following questions. Thank you for your assistance.

Pre-School Enrollment Agreement

Your child is enrolled in the Uxbridge Public Schools Pre-School Program.

Tuition for the two-day program is $1,600 annually ($160 monthly), tuition for the three-day program is $2,400 annually ($240 monthly), and tuition for the five-day program is $4,000 annually ($400 monthly). Payments are made on a ten month installment plan, due on the 15th of each month beginning in August 2018. Final payment will be due on May 15, 2019. If payment is made in one lump sum you may deduct 5%. 

In case of tardy payments, a fee of $25 will be assessed on the 16th of each month. Failure to pay for the service (including late charges) by the end of the month (30 days) will result in your child being unable to attend the program. In addition, the Town Collector's Office will charge a $25 fee for any returned checks.

The Earl D. Taft Early Learning Center is a public self-supporting, non-profit agency, which offers the highest quality programs in pre-school at the lowest possible costs. In the case of financial need, a limited number of reduced rates on a sliding scale basis are available. Neither the registration fee of $40, nor paid tuition is refundable upon withdrawal of your child from the program.

Holidays and "snow" days are considered part of the school schedule and are inclusive in tuition costs. We try to keep the morning and afternoon classes balanced. When classes are canceled due to inclement weather, every attempt is made to reschedule sessions missed. Because of the two, three and 5-day programs, and the school calendar, this is not always possible.
