The Motivation Behind This Guide

  • Welcome to the Falmouth Public Schools Kindergarten Program! This guide is a supplement to the Student and Parent/Guardian Handbook. Kindergarten is a very special time and often a family’s first interaction with the public school system. This guide will provide you with some foundational information about what you can expect from the kindergarten experience. We are excited to begin our partnership in educating your child! You will be receiving additional information during the following times:

    Open House:  Held at each elementary school. Please look for the open house date in the registration packet. 

    Screening: Screening will take place in late spring and is designed to review a child’s development in a variety of areas to assist in the identification of those children who may need additional assessment to determine eligibility for special education services.

    You will be contacted by your child’s school as to the specifics of these events.

    The teachers in our program are highly qualified and certified in early childhood education, according to the Massachusetts Educator licensure requirements. Our staff is continually engaged in professional learning to provide your child with the best developmentally appropriate instruction. Our teachers are passionate about what they do and about meeting the needs of their students. We look forward to working with you and helping your child learn.
