New! 3 Year Old Lottery

Cambridge Public Schools (CPS) offers three programs for children as young as age 3:

All of these programs follow the CPS academic calendar of holidays and school vacations, with only minor variations based on program needs. Very limited seats are available; these programs serve approximately 90 total students, including returning 4-year-olds who entered at Age 3. You can start the process by downloading the registration application and other required forms from our Forms Page.

The deadline to apply for these programs is October 31, 2013 to enter school in September 2014.
