  • Dear Preschool Families, 

    After careful review of our preschool programming, we have determined that our high-quality programming is not dependent upon participating in the NAEYC accreditation process. The NAEYC Early Learning Standards and Accreditation Criteria & Guidance for Assessment are already strong in our program, and the NAEYC stands in the midst of an accreditation transition year.

    Currently, our program fosters positive relationships with students and families as well as collaboration among colleagues both within the preschool program and beyond.  Our developmentally appropriate curriculum is aligned with MA DESE Curriculum Frameworks. Our teachers are highly qualified. Assessment is ongoing and informs instruction. Our pediatric first aid trained staff promote a healthy and safe environment to support students. Our staff are continuous learners who regularly engage in professional development to enhance their own educational growth. Our program establishes home-school connections with families and the community, which best supports students. Our program is led by educators with an early childhood background. In fact, we would prefer to independently grow each of these criteria, rather than to spend months quantifying our execution of these criteria.

    As such, we are confident that our high quality preschool program will continue to thrive given our commitment to early childhood education in the Hopkinton Public Schools. If families have questions or concerns, they can reach out to Dr. Zaleski or Mrs. Dubeau. Every child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic growth is at the center of all that we do.       

     

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Carol Cavanaugh, Superintendent

    Dr. Karen Zaleski, Director of Student Services

    Lauren Dubeau, Principal
