Scheduling & Tuition

Preschoolers between the ages of 2.9 to 5 years old may be enrolled for three, four, or five days per week. All students are enrolled in the program for either a Full Day or a Half Day schedule as follows:

  • Full Day: 8:15 am – 3:30 pm
  • Half Day: 8:15 am – 12:00 pm

We try to work with the scheduling needs and requests of individual families, and flexibility is always helpful when we are making enrollment offers. Once set, the enrollment schedule remains consistent for the year. We are unable to accommodate schedule requests for three consecutive days per week.

Preschoolers are welcome to arrive any time after 8:15 am. We request that all students arrive no later than 8:35 am to allow everyone to participate in our Morning Meeting, as this is an important component of each school day.

Dalton Preschool follows the Central Berkshire Regional School District calendar. 2022-23 holiday and school closures can be viewed here.
