2022-23 All Aboard and TOTS Fees

2022-23 Calendar

 

Westfield Washington Schools 2022-2023 All Aboard Pre-k Program is designed for children who will be 4 years old by August 1, 2022 and will be entering kindergarten the 2023-2024 school year.  The All Aboard curricular-based classrooms emphasize an enriched kindergarten readiness curriculum. The program offers two levels of service to meet family child care needs and a desire to assure full readiness as the child enters Indiana's full day kindergarten classrooms the following school year. 

The program has limited enrollment (filled by lottery selection, if necessary) with one classroom at each of the six elementary buildings.  This program is available to families who live in the Westfield Washington School district boundaries and children of Westfield Washington School employees.  During the enrollment process, parents may request a preference for a specific elementary school in which their child would attend All Aboard.  Student Support Programs will make every effort to consider all requests.   Placement is solely the decision of the Director of Student Support Programs and is influenced by many factors, including future projections for class size by All Aboard location and by classroom.  If at any time families would need to be moved to balance school classroom numbers, we will do all we can to work with the families with ample notice of the change.

  • All Inclusive School Year Plan -- Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (including break care, MKL Day, President's Day, and staff development days)
