The Before School Program is designed to meet the needs of our families whose work day requires an additional hour of morning child care. The program operates Monday - Friday from 7:25 A.M. - 8:25 A.M. on the Nashoba Regional School District calendar and is closed on all vacations, holidays, snow days and delayed openings. Our locations are the Emerson School Gym, Center School Science Room and Mary Rowlandson Elementary School Cafeteria. All participants are required to register using the online registration from. There is a $35.00 non-refundable registration fee for students that do not also attend the Extended Learning Program in the afternoon.

We have a drive-by drop off system. A staff member will greet you in your vehicle and sign-in your child or children between 7:25 A.M. and 7:45 A.M. Parents do not have to exit their vehicles. We ask that parents drive slowly, and put their vehicle in park while their child exits. All vehicles must wait in the car line to drop off their child or children (passing of vehicles is strictly prohibited). Children who arrive after 7:40 A.M. must be escorted into the buildings through the main entrance by a parent or adult and signed in with a staff member.

Parents may not drop off their child at Extended Learning without being registered in the program.


The program operates Monday - Friday with one, two, three, four and five day options. The cost is $6.12 per day and the program follows a 10 month (September - June) tuition structure. Day by day payments are not accepted. Parents will be emailed monthly invoices. All payments can be made using the website or by mailing a check to:
