Smithfield Public Schools Preschool at
Anna McCabe Elementary School
**Currently we have no available slots for 2018-2019 school year, but we encourage you to send your applications in. Occasionally, there is a need to fill a  buddy slot(s) mid-year. All applications are date stamped and held on file. Your child must be 3 1/2 to be eligible at the time of enrollment.

A lottery will be held in the Spring 2019 and buddies will be chosen for the '19-'20 school year. Acceptance letters, as well as notification letters (not chosen), will be mailed home within two weeks of the lottery. 

If you are interested in learning about our preschool program, check out the webpage for our downloadable pamphlet and frequently asked questions. Send us your completed application.
