The Quincy Public Schools Integrated Pre-Kindergarten Programs serve 3- and 4-year old children with special needs and their typically developing peers. Classes are half-day sessions held on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Children must be 3 years old on or before August 31, 2017 to be considered for these programs. Priority is given to 4-year olds, followed by children who are 3 1/2 or older.
Screenings for entering the Pre-Kindergarten program for the 2017-2018 school year have been completed, but you may request for your child’s name to be added to the waiting list in case there are available seats later in Fall 2017. Please contact the school below that corresponds with your neighborhood. If you are unsure of your neighborhood school district, please consult the QPS Street Directory.
