 What areas for learning are in the playspace?
The playspace is set up with a chalkboard, water table, book corner, dress-up, blocks, manipulatives, number/letter magnet board and more. The toys and materials are rotated to provide a variety of learning experiences and encourage a combination of independent explorations, peer interaction and structured play.

 Is there an outdoor playspace?
The children play outside every day (weather-permitting) in a quiet backyard with a climbing structure, sandbox, and swings.

 What should children wear at school?
Comfortable clothes that can get messy. In order to keep our playspace clean and your little ones cozy, children will wear slippers when inside.

 What should children bring to school?
Slippers and a change of clothes to leave at school for the entire session. Diapers, if necessary. A special blanket or snuggle toy is OK too. Children bring lunch from home.

 What is the teaching philosophy?
We believe that children learn through play, stories, songs and games. The playspace is designed to provide opportunities for children to explore and learn through hands-on activities. Our goal is to help children develop competencies that will benefit them throughout their life: social skills, independence, and a love for learning.

 What is the student:teacher ratio?
The maximum student:teacher ratio is
6:1.

 Is food provided for the children?
Healthy snacks, including fresh fruit, cereal and crackers are provided every day. Milk and water are offered daily. Children bring lunch from home. Babies bring formula/breast milk and baby food from home.

 Are there scheduled holidays/vacations?
The vacation and holiday schedule coincides with the Westwood Public School calendar. The playschool will be closed on those days.
