Application Process

We are no longer accepting new community peers for the current 2023/2024 or for the 2024/2025 school year. A wait list has been established for the 2024/2025 school year.

Community Peer Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Sharon Public Schools preschool program! We are the only public preschool in our town. Our program is integrated with students with and without disabilities in an inclusive environment where everyone belongs!

All community peers, students without disabilities, must be 3 years old by August 31 and be a resident of the town of Sharon. Community peers enrolled in our program have the unique opportunity to interact and learn with peers with disabilities. This provides an experience of acceptance, belonging, and respect. Our preschool takes extraordinary pride in the diversity of our community and the benefits extended to all learners - with and without disabilities.  The lottery for the 2024-2025 school year was held on December 20, 2023.
