Early Education Vision

  • As our students live in an increasingly globalized world, Framingham Public Schools, in collaboration with families and our community, will ensure that every child grows and thrives in our Early Education Program. Our interdisciplinary, culturally-responsive curriculum aims for all students to embrace diversity and be a valued member of their school community. Our goal is to support student growth by building their foundational social-emotional and academic skills through hands-on, play-based, shared learning experiences that foster confident, successful lifelong learners.
