Each year over 1,300 new students enter the Stamford Public School (SPS) district. Kindergarten plays an important role in shaping these young learners. It is necessary that these students have a positive classroom experience to ignite their lifelong love of learning.

SPEF is committed to helping teachers, students, and families have a positive early education experience. It all begins with registering your child for kindergarten.

SPEF’s Summer Start Early Learning Experience

Summer Start is a FREE 5-week, half-day program for children entering the Stamford Public Schools (SPS) who have not had a complete preschool experience.

There are many factors that present challenges and gaps in a child’s learning experience.  Before entering formal learning in the Stamford Public Schools, SPEF wants to ensure that each child has the opportunity to enjoy a safe, fun, and nurturing Pre-K learning experience.
