Early Childhood Programs
Kristen Farias, Director
Coordinated Family and community engagement (CFCE)
CFCE provides support for families and children from before birth through school age. We provide access to comprehensive services, child development information, and educational opportunities to support you in your role as your child’s first teacher.
This program helps families who do not have access to preschool to prepare their children to enter school ready to succeed.
If you are a stay-at-home parent or caregiver of a child 0-5 years, please join us at one or more of our free Play & Learn Groups.
The Fall River Public School 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.
To register your child for the preschool lottery please use the PRESCHOOL link below. Once registered you will receive an appointment to bring your child to the Early Childhood office for a developmental screening. Screening appointments will begin in March. The deadline to apply for the 2021-2022 lottery is Friday, April 9, 2021.
