Children who attend this mixed-age group have a typical preschool day from 8:00 am until 1 pm with their day including both snack and lunch. Naptime, for the children who do nap, is from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. Children who do not nap, have quiet rest time from 3:00- 3:30 pm. Each child has a cot and may look at books, do puzzles, listen to stories and music tapes, or just rest. After nap or rest, the children have a snack and then free-choice time in the classroom or on the playground. The children who stay until 6:00 pm enjoy free choice indoor activities, cooking, science projects, indoor and outdoor learning experiences, and may also play on the playground.
Children participate in our Summer Camp program.
The full-time program strives to meet the needs of working parents while balancing the many holidays and vacations throughout the typical school year. Therefore, the full-time program is closed on Election Day, Thanksgiving Recess (including the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving), and the Westport school break in December. We close for one week at the end of August for staff training, building cleaning, and maintenance.
