Truro Central School Preschool Program Enrollment Policy
The Truro Central School Preschool Program serves the Town's three- and four-year-olds. By state and federal regulation, preschoolers three years old and older are entitled to Special Education services, including enrollment in a program with their peers.
The TCS program is open to resident children who turn 3 years old on or before September 1 of a given year. TCS also enrolls children of Town employees. The School Committee does not charge a fee for this program. Maximum enrollment is set by state regulation.
Registrations for each year's program are set in the spring. In setting enrollment, school staff will take into account factors including the child's age; previous school experience; the child's needs; the family's requested schedule; and program logistics. Some preference is often given four year olds who will be entering Kindergarten the following year. Families are invited to provide such information as they wish to have considered. All information will be treated confidentially, in keeping with student records requirements. The Principal will make enrollment decisions at her/his professional discretion, after consulting with appropriate staff, balancing the interests of individual children with the effectiveness of the program.
