Registration for Scituate Public Schools Academic and Social Programs
Academic Year Cycle​
Academic Year Cycle

 

Programs are open to ALL Scituate Public School students, unless designated, and are staffed appropriately so that children with special needs can successfully participate in them.   For each program, we have identified highly qualified SPS staff and aide support to provide a low staff to student ratio (usually 1:3 for social groups and 1:4 for academic courses) to assure the high quality of this programming for our students. Unfortunately, we no longer accept out-of-town registrations for Scituate Public Schools' academic and social development programs, except for students tuitioned into SPS or Scituate students who are enrolled out of district.

 

If you register after January 22, your child's start date may be delayed to assure appropriate staffing. 

Financial Assistance Available

Programs will follow all SPS COVID guidelines

 

Circle of Friends (Pre-school), begins February 2, 10 sessions

Registration for this program is NOW FULL, Please email programregistration@corsefoundation.org to be placed on the wait list 

This program provides a small group setting for students to develop social thinking and language to enhance their play and conversational skills.  Through interactive play and small group activities, children build their skills in communicating, sharing and problem-solving. The optimal teacher-child ratio promotes opportunities for children to learn through structured play and facilitated conversations. Children will be encouraged to express themselves, both verbally and through art/journals. Children will practice identifying expected and unexpected behavior in groups by role playing and using puppets.  Some examples of expected behaviors that will be focused on during the session include; listening to others, taking turns and participating appropriately in group settings.  This class is geared toward 4-5 year olds; 3 year olds will be considered if space is available.  Students must be independently toilet trained.
