New Student Registration


The Littleton Public Schools offers Inclusive Preschool Classroom Programs and an Inclusive Playgroup for children, ages 3-5 who require special education services, and those who do not. Inclusion in preschool refers to including children with disabilities in early childhood programs together with their community peers without disabilities, holding high expectations and intentionally promoting participation in all learning and social activities facilitated by individualized accommodations and using evidence-based services and supports to foster child development in the areas of cognition, language, communication, physical, behavioral, and social-emotional, as well as fostering friendships with peers, and an overall sense of belonging. Instruction for all children is universally designed and aligned with the Massachusetts Early Learning Standards.


Registration for new kindergarten students entering school in September 2020 will be held on February 12, 2020 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm or 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Shaker Lane School.
