COVID-19 Update




We are committed to student achievement and individual success for each learner. The students are our primary concern and we take all aspects of their growth and development very seriously.  We aspire to provide a quality education for all students while addressing individual needs, strengths, challenges, and unique learning styles so that they may reach their fullest potential.  Our early childhood learning environment fosters an appreciation of individuality, diversity, and citizenship.  It is our hope that our students will develop a desire to become lifelong learners, and contributing members of society, and that they will pursue academic excellence as they begin their educational journey with us at Cold Spring School.

The preschool at Cold Spring School is a tuition-free Integrated Early Childhood Program for 3 and 4-year-olds. It is a daily, half-day program. The morning 3-year-old session runs from 8:30 - 11:00 am; the afternoon 4-year-old session runs from 12:15 - 2:45 pm. Transportation to and from school must be provided by the parent/guardian. In order to be eligible for our program, your child must have been born on or before 9/1/2020, be fully toilet trained, and be a resident of Belchertown.


Completing this Notice of Interest Google Form by April 28, 2023, will indicate your interest in enrolling your child as a peer model student in our preschool program for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. This form does not guarantee a spot in the program.  If the number of interested peer model candidates exceeds our allotted number of spaces, a lottery will be held. You will be notified if your child has been assigned a spot in early May 2023. If your child is offered a spot at that time, you will be asked to complete the registration paperwork via our Central Office.
