Early Childhood Program
The mission of the Early Childhood Program (ECP) is to welcome and support Woburn children ages 3-5 years, with and without disabilities. Our goal is to build a strong foundation based on school readiness, social and emotional, communication, and motor skills. We strive to provide a safe learning environment where students develop confidence, establish peer relationships, increase independent skills, and be an active participant in an early childhood classroom.
Check out our Program Guide for more detailed information about Woburn's Early Childhood Program.
The Early Childhood Program classrooms are staffed by licensed special education teachers. Dedicated occupational and physical therapists, school psychologists, speech and language pathologists, board certified behavior analysts, orientation & mobility, vision, and augmentative alternative communication consult to the program.
Neighborhood Peer Models
In addition to servicing Special Education Students, Woburn's Early Childhood Program welcomes Neighborhood Peers on a tuition basis. Click HERE for program details. The program is scheduled in half-day sessions. Children applying as neighborhood peers will be scheduled in either the AM or PM session (times listed below).
AM Session: Monday through Thursday 8:30am to 11:00am
PM Session: Monday through Thursday 11:50am to 2:20pm
Registrations are now done on-line. Classroom placement for Neighborhood Peers is established on a first come first serve basis. Applications are accepted and processed any time after April 1st for the following school year based on available space. Late registrations (after school has begun) will be reviewed for placement at set intervals during the school year. This will happen at the beginning of January and March, and peers will be placed into classes if space is available at these times.
Program Requirements for Neighborhood Peers:

The fee for the ECP program as a neighborhood peer is $300/month for 10 months, September through June. Total tuition for the year is $3000. This year, due to hardships from COVID-19, we have decided to hold the tuition to $220 per month through December 2020. On January 1, 2021 the tuition will be $300 per month through June. That means the total tuition for the 2020-2021 school year will be $2680.
A $100 registration fee is due on June 1st 2020, along with registration paperwork, to hold a spot for the year. This $100 registration fee will purchase the supplies that your child will need for the school year.
The first payment is due on September 1st and on the 1st of every month thereafter, through June 1st. A $25 late fee/returned check fee may be assessed for late payments.
