Preschool Registration

Dear Incoming Preschool Parents:

It’s time to register for preschool for the 2017-18 school year. Your child must be born on or before September 1, 2014. Thatcher Brook Primary School (TBPS) has a two day a week program (regular school hours) for preschoolers with busing provided. It is a Tuesday/Thursday or a Wednesday/Friday session.

Preschool choice is available throughout the state of Vermont.  Per state law, you can elect for your child to attend any preschool in Vermont that meets state standards (the state maintains a list of all pre-qualified programs) and the town of residence will pay for up to 10 hours of this programming.  You must let us know if your intention is to access this funding for a program other than TBPS, so that we can insure the proper paperwork is completed.

IF YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH TBPS AND YOUR CHILD IS ATTENDING PRESCHOOL, YOU DO NOT NEED TO RE-REGISTER.

This registration packet must be completed in full and include a copy of the child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residence.
The following dates are important in the preschool registration/screening process:
  • January 17 to February 24 - Registration paperwork available @ TBPS
  • January 17 to February 24 - Screening appointments for Monday, March 13th can be made after turning in completed paperwork.
  • February 24- Registration paperwork deadline.
  • March 13 - Preschool screening @ TBPS IF YOU THINK IT IS NEEDED
  • April 24 - Lottery for TBPS preschool slots
  • April 26 - Acceptance/rejections letters sent out for TBPS slots
  • May 2 - TBPS preschool slots acceptance confirmed by parents
If you have any questions please call or email Bonnie Flanagan bflanagan@wwsu.org or Denise Goodnow dgoodnow@wwsu.org at TBPS 244-7195.

Grow Grant

The Thatcher Brook Primary School PTO is thrilled to announce that we have received a Grow Grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund to expand our current Four Winds community involvement program to include important sustainability-themed activities, such as the school gardens, the classroom cooking cart, farm-to-school activities, and energy education. Through a planning process during this Spring 2017, we hope to engage businesses, the public and private sector, new volunteers, and our students to integrate existing activities and programs for greater sustainability education. We have received $2,500 for this planning and initial piloting phase. If you have questions or want more information, please contact Dana Hudson at hudsondana@comcast.net.

The New England Grassroots Environment Fund energizes and nurtures long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, just, safe, and sustainable communities using stories, tools and dollars to fuel local activism and social change. Since 1996, the Grassroots Fund’s core grant making program continues to fund nearly 150 grants annually, giving more than $4 million in 20 years to more than 2,000 community groups and initiatives covering more than 60 percent of New England’s cities and towns.
