  • Weston Wing offers a balanced, child-centered program where learning encompasses the whole child. In each classroom, our skilled teachers use play based curriculum that is directed by each child’s interests and natural curiosity with opportunities for exploration and adventure. Weston Wing’s staff is responsive to each child’s individual learning style, engaging and challenging them while providing opportunities for success.

    In addition to the many varied daily activities, a music and creative movement specialist visits regularly. Special Guests, such as the New England Aquarium, provide additional enriching experiences for the children.

    Our program adheres to the curriculum standards of the Massachusetts Department of Education and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

  • Transitional Kindergarten

    Weston Wing Preschool and Childcare — Transitional Program

    Does your child have a fall birthday and miss Kindergarten cut-off dates? Does your child have a summer birthday and would benefit from “The Gift of Time.” Do you want another year of daily interaction with the school community? Our Transitional Kindergarten can help your child continue his/her development in an environment that supports the individuality of children while achieving milestones. Today’s Kindergarten has more structured academic time based on Common Core standards and less time for individualized, developmental instruction. Readiness for Kindergarten requires children to be socially and emotionally solid, able to be still and process group instruction for long periods of time, to be independent in self-help skills, and capable of functioning in a large group. Weston Wing TK can provide your child with a warm, nurturing environment where he/she can experience a multi-sensory, play-based curriculum that will allow time for maturity and a small, personalized approach to readiness skills. Our curriculum addresses core values as well as the areas of language arts, math and numeracy concepts, social studies, science, motor skills, and the arts. All students will have the opportunity to explore, manipulate, postulate, and play as individuals as well as members of small groups.
