The Brookline Early Education Program (BEEP) is excited to welcome our youngest new students and their families! We know this is a very special time in each child’s life, and we look forward to being part of the journey.
This section of our website will guide you through the registration process for the Brookline Early Education Program. The mission of the Brookline Early Education Program is to provide an inclusive environment where all children from ages 3-5 can learn social competency, develop cognitive, motor and language skills, and expand their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
The Application Process
Please note that because of space limitations, the Public Schools of Brookline is not able to guarantee space in our early education program for all children. Enrollment in the Public Schools of Brookline (PSB) is contingent upon residency. This means that you must be a resident of Brookline in order to attend BEEP. Those who wish to enroll their child or children must do the following:
- Complete the BEEP application. If you would like your child to be added to our waitlist for the current school year, please complete our 2018-2019 School Year Waitlist Application. To complete a waitlist application please click here.
- Understand the Application Policy. First priority in admission is given to those children returning from the previous year, and to siblings of students formerly enrolled in our program. We make every attempt to balance our classes appropriately through a lottery system. Factors that are considered include, but are not limited to, gender, age, primary language, special needs, home school district, students who have previously applied and were not accepted and prior school experience. Age cut-offs are strictly followed, and proof of Brookline residency is required. The Brookline Early Education Program does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnic origin or marital status, disability, sexual orientation or political affiliation.
- Attend an information session (if applicable). Additional information can be found here.
- Receive an acceptance letter from BEEP as space allows. If space is available, BEEP will offer your student an opportunity to enroll. If there are not enough open spaces in a classroom, your student will be placed on our waitlist. Email notifications with information regarding this process, as well as application status, will be sent to all families. Only those students who receive an acceptance letter from BEEP should complete the online enrollment application, called Registration Gateway, as instructed in your letter.
