The Plymouth Early Childhood Council announced information about their Plymouth Preschool Scholarship Fund. Please click here to read more.

The Plymouth FRC school day classes will run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm five days a week for both three and four year old children. This will continue to be a NAEYC accredited classroom that is overseen by the State of Ct’s School Readiness council.   We will continue to offer financial assistance to families who qualify through the various grants and scholarship in the community. The full day preschool class will be contingent on adequate enrollment for us to proceed with this offering. 

Our curriculum is guided by Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards. The framework is designed to assure that children develop skills in the areas of:

Personal/social development
Cognitive development
Physical development
Creative Development
Creative/aesthetic development 

We utilize the Conscious Discipline model which integrates social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation so we spend less time policing behaviors and more time teaching vital life skills.



On June 27, 2012, the State Board of Education adopted definitions for excused and unexcused absences for use by schools and districts in order to implement the statutory policies and procedures concerning truants, and the reporting of truancy.

The Connecticut State Department of Education was asked to issue guidance to help districts in implementing the new definitions. Click here is a link to the guidelines.

Page 17 of this document contains the Connecticut General Statutes Section 10-198a, which goes into great detail in explaining truant.

Based on that the Connecticut General Statutes Section 10-198a, the policy does not apply to preschool at the Plymouth FRC. However, attendance at school is vital for your child's education and success.
