How to Enroll
Continued Enrollment at John Winthrop School
Once enrolled at John Winthrop School, you are guaranteed a space from year to year. There is no need to reapply. Age groupings in each classroom remain flexible and meet the state regulations; children in a toddler classroom must be at least 15 months of age and children in a preschool classroom must be at least 2 years and 9 months of age.
Teachers are experienced in teaching a full range of ages. Each team plans and develops curricula based on the developmental needs of individual children and the group as a whole. Whether your child remains in his/her current classroom for another year, moves to the next room or skips a classroom, our commitment remains to offer a program that is developmentally appropriate and challenging in all areas of development.
The director is responsible for classroom assignments each year. A variety of factors are considered in this decision process. We strive to create a classroom of children with varied backgrounds, interests and abilities. A balanced mix enriches the children’s experience and respects and honors the diversity of our community.
