Who we serve
The West End Village School offers a full-day, school-year preschool program, and six week summer camp program with full and part-time enrollment options. We serve families with children ages two and a half to five years old. Mondays - Thursdays during the school year, we also offer an After-school Playgroup from 2:30-4:30pm for our families looking for extended-day care.
Hours of Operation
For both our Summer Camp and School Year Programs, doors open for drop off from 8 - 8:45am Monday - Friday, with pick-up from 2-2:30pm Monday - Thursday. During the school year pick up is at 1:30 on Fridays to accommodate weekly staff meetings and professional development for our teachers.
The West End Village School was formally established in February of 2018. As a long-time early childhood educator and curriculum developer, Josephine (our owner and director) designed the West End Village School to reflect the current best practices in play-based early learning, largely inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. The program is purposefully small with a low student-teacher ratio, to ensure a personalized and flexible program that meets children where they're at, offering each child maximum support in his or her unique educational journey.
