Welcome to the Fall River Public School District’s Early Childhood Programs.  We work to ensure that all families with children prenatal through 8 years old have access in their community to the support and services that are essential to their success.

We provide information on school readiness activities, integrated preschool programs,  developmental screenings, Preschool and Kindergarten registration, play & learn groups, early education and care programs, state-wide centralized wait list for child care vouchers, family literacy programs, newsletters, adult literacy programs and much more.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

The Fall River Public Schools offers half and full day preschool classrooms focused on the development of each child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills through a developmentally appropriate, play-based program. Enrollment in our preschool classrooms follows a lottery system. For more information on our preschool lottery please click here

At this time registration for the preschool lottery is closed. As a result of overwhelming interest we are no longer accepting additions to the wait list. A list of community based preschool programs can be found below.
