What are the school's normal hours of operation?

Instructional school days vary depending on the program our children are in.

  •     For Pre-K3 children the day starts at 8:45 am and runs through 12:00 noon, followed by nap-time.
  •     For Pre-K4 children and Kindergarten through 2nd Grade children, the day starts at 8:45 am and runs through 3:00 pm.

Between the hours of 7:30 am and 8:45 am and again between the hours of 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, the school offers before and after-school care for all students.


“Both of our children have been so happy at The Winchester School it is unbelievable! The caring and structured environment has done wonders to help our children grow and learn to love learning! The Winchester School’s educational tradition is enviable; we wish more schools could be inspired…”

"It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them."
