Thank you for your interest in the Westford Integrated Preschool.

The curriculum is based on Massachusetts Pre-Kindergarten Common Core State Standards and addresses social, emotional, early academic, play, self-help, communication, gross motor, fine motor, and visual motor skills.
Tours are given the first Wednesday of the month at 9:30 and 1:00 or by appointment.
Philosophy and Mission Statement:
We believe that the educational process is the shared responsibility of all members of the school community. We are committed to creating a climate of universal respect among members of our community. Within this culture, each child learns to be a responsible, life-long learner. It is our goal to provide high quality early childhood education in a warm, nurturing atmosphere. We believe that every child has unique skills and we are dedicated to helping each child develop these skills and reach his or her full potential. Our program offers the benefits of experienced staff and individualized curriculum that meets the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences.
Our program includes full and half-day sessions for children who are 3, 4, and 5 years old. Enrollment is rolling and children can enter throughout the year. However, children must be three on or before their first day of school. Children are not accepted prior to their third birthday. Consult our brochure for specifics. To apply to enroll your child, download, complete, and return the registration form (below).
