Kindergarten Registration is open!!

Kindergarten registration is now open for all children who reside in the Quabbin towns of Barre, Hardwick, Hubbardston, New Braintree and Oakham who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2023.  Registration forms may be downloaded HERE, completed, and returned to your child’s “home” school in the town in which you reside or mailed to Kindergarten Registration, QRSD Educational Support Center, 872 South Street, Barre, MA 01005.  Paper copies may also be picked up at your home school or the Educational Support Center.  All registration forms, including birth certificate and proof of residency must be returned by Friday, May 5, 2023

If your child is currently enrolled in the QRSD preschool program, you have met all the requirements for registration.  A verification of information form was mailed to you on Monday, March 13th in order to verify and update your child’s information. Please confirm or change the information on the form, sign, and return by Friday, May 5, 2023.  

 A virtual kindergarten screening information night will be held on Wednesday, May 17th from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The link to this virtual session will be sent to all families in May.  This session will be hosted by the Early Childhood Coordinator Shelly St. George and Colleen Mucha, District Director of Teaching, Learning & Support.

Kindergarten screening will take place during the last week of May and the first week of June.  Specific dates and times will be communicated with parents and guardians once we have received your child’s completed registration forms.  

Student names for those on our incoming kindergarten list were gathered from our preschool records and from the five district towns local census information. If you do not attend preschool in the QRSD or have not answered your town census, please contact Jessica Bennett at or by phone at (978)355-4668, ext. 8500 with your child’s information.

We are excited to meet your child at Kindergarten screening and look forward to partnering with you in your child’s educational journey!!!
