Early Learning Center




Serving Preschool Children, Ages 3-5 years

 About Andover Elementary School Early Learning Center

  • The preschool program services both children with special needs and typically developing children.
  • Children with special needs have priority enrollment in the preschool program.
  • Preschool slots are first filled by returning four-year-olds and incoming special needs children. Remaining slots are offered to families who meet School Readiness or Smart Start criteria.
  • Families are charged a tuition fee based on the Connecticut Sliding Fee Scale.
  • In order to be eligible for preschool enrollment, parents must fill out the necessary paperwork. This paperwork is a requirement of the School Readiness and Smart Start funding.  If the forms are not completed, your child will not be placed in the lottery.
  • Following the screening, a lottery will be held for those families who wish to enroll their child into the program. If you do not wish to enroll your child, please notify the school.
  • Families are notified by the end of May of their child's preschool enrollment status.
  • Children who are not chosen through the lottery system will be placed on a waitlist. If slots open up, the families listed first on the waitlist will be notified by the school.
  • A mandatory meeting will be held in August for parents of all enrolled preschool children.
