A daily schedule gives children the stability and security they need to have a successful and positive school experience.  We strive to provide a consistent schedule that adds structure to your child's day but also leaves plenty of room for flexibility and creativity.  
Our school year begins in early September and ends in early June.  
We generally follow the Hamden Public School Calendar regarding vacations and holidays.
