PreK Learning Opportunities
Partnerships for Early Learners
Now Accepting Applications
Framingham Public Schools is partnering with the MetroWest YMCA and Framingham State University - Centers for Early Childhood Education; Partnerships for Early Learners (PEL) to offer PreK learning opportunities. This is a PreK expansion program 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.
Curriculum and instruction will be based on half-day enrollment, either in the morning or in the afternoon, with extended day options that will enhance social emotional learning. Program locations include the BLOCKS Preschool (FPS), the MetroWest YMCA, and Framingham State University - Centers for Early Childhood Education. There is no guarantee of placement and the assigned program location will be based on a variety of factors pulled from the intake form.
The program runs from September 2023 - June 2024. Interested families are invited to submit the PreK Intake Form (linked below) and will need to meet eligibility criteria for acceptance. If the interest exceeds the available openings, a lottery will take place in early December to fill these PreK spots for children to attend before entering Kindergarten in September 2024.
Please be sure your child meets the following two requirements before completing the Intake Form linked below.
- Child will be 4 years old by August 31, 2023
- Child does not currently attend any early childhood, child care, family care, or preschool program.
Upon completion of the Intake Form, families will be contacted to discuss their needs in finding the program that best fits their child’s first early education experience, as well as to receive the lottery dates if needed. For more information please contact Christina Shea directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Framingham Families,
If you have or know a child that will be five years old by August 31, 2023, online pre-registration for incoming Kindergarteners for the 2023-2024 school year is now open: https://www.framingham.k12.ma.us/kindergarten. Please disregard if this message does not apply to you.
All new incoming Kindergarteners must be registered - even if you already have children in Framingham Public Schools.
If it has been a while since you last registered an incoming Kindergartener, the process has changed slightly. When you go through the online system, you will first be asked to schedule your telephone appointment with our Registrars (this used to happen at the end). Before you attend the phone appointment, you will need to gather all of your required paperwork.

Allergy Friendly Classrooms
- We ask that snacks (that are often eaten in the classroom) do not include nuts or nut butters. All classroom spaces at King this year will be allergy friendly rooms. Students are, however, allowed to have nuts and nut butters as part of their lunches in the cafeteria.
- In the cafeteria each classroom has 2 tables. One is labeled allergy friendly. We ask that any students that have nut or nut butter allergies sit at these tables; we ask that any students who have nut or nut butters as part of their lunch sit at the other tables.
- Students have been introduced to this in the cafeteria already, and will be reminded by their classroom teachers again.
