The Early Learning Center is a NAEYC accredited preschool program offered by the West Hartford Public Schools.  The program is 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday).  Children who are accepted into the program through the screening and lottery process will be assigned either a morning or afternoon session depending on their age.  The morning session is from 9:00am-11:30am for children born between January 1, 2019 to October 31, 2019.  The afternoon session is from 12:15pm-2:45pm for children born between January 1, 2018 to October 31, 2018.  Tuition cost is $850 for the school year.

To be considered for the program, children must exhibit age-appropriate language, social and play skills.  All applicants must participate in play-based screening prior to being considered for the lottery selection process.  You will be contacted regarding dates and times for the screening.
