The Littleton Public Schools would like to welcome you and your child(ren) to our school system. Please contact the school that you are registering your child at or the Administrative Office at 978-540-2506 if you have any questions regarding the registration process.
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 information for the 2021-2022 school year will be available early March. Open House will be held at that time.
