Early Education

From the Director...


Welcome to the Barre Unified Union School District’s Early Education page. Families residing in Barre City and Barre Town have a few options for early education for children ages 3-5 in and around our community.

The Barre City and Barre Town schools serve children through public pre-kindergarten programs on a first come-first served basis. In addition, the BUUSD partners with local and regional pre-qualified pre-kindergarten programs, providing families with the flexibility to access early education in a setting outside of the public school.  For more information about each of these options, see the links here and on each school’s individual webpages.

NOTE: The Barre Unified Union School District is looking into transitioning to an online registration system for Prekindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year. Please reach out to Lauren May at lmaybsu@buusd.org for more information on registering your child for public Pre-K or to access Act 166 funds.

At any time, if you have a concern about your child's development, please contact your school and request to speak with the Assistant to the Director of Student Services.  This person will help connect you to our early education team.

Back to School Resources

The prekindergarten and kindergarten teachers at the BUUSD have been working on ways to support your children as they get ready to return to school this fall. We’ve put together a selection of resources to help you prepare your child for the unique experience of returning to school with COVID-19 health and safety measures in place.
