West Falmouth Preschool offers two program options determined by the child’s birth year. A child must be 2.9 years old (two years, nine months) by September 1 to enroll in our Two-Day Program or 4 years old, also by September 1, to enroll in the Three-Day Program. Each program has a maximum of 22 children.
The Two-Day Program is designed for children ages 2.9 to 4 years old. These children attend school on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with lunch and an option to “stay and play” until 3:00 p.m.
The Three-Day Program is designed for children 4 years and older who attend on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with lunch, and also have the option to “stay and play” until 3:00 p.m.
We also offer an optional “Early Drop-Off” Program from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on the days your child is enrolled.
Depending on the program your child enters, the staff plans activities to encourage the learning process through sensory exploration and physical manipulation of various materials, such as art blocks, Play-doh, and puzzles. Daily, children may choose from many activities, such as arts and crafts, blocks of all sizes, shapes and colors, painting, sand and water tables, dramatic play with costumes, imaginary cooking in a child-size play kitchen, and books of all kinds.
