Scheduling & Tuition

Preschoolers between the ages of 2.9 to 5 years old may be enrolled for either three, four, or five days per week.

All children are enrolled in the program for either a Full Day schedule  or  a Half Day schedule as follows:

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

We try to work with individual families’ scheduling needs and requests, and flexibility is always helpful in making enrollment offers.

Once set, enrollment schedule days remain constant for the year. We are unable to accommodate requests for three consecutive day weekly schedules.

Preschoolers are welcome to arrive any time after 8:15am.  We ask that all children arrive no later than 8:35am to allow all children 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. Holidays and school closures can be viewed here.
