Since 1974, the Walpole Village School has been preparing children for successful early childhood education. We are a non-profit offering preschool and pre-k for children aged two to five, and before and after-school care for children aged two to twelve. We provide a safe and stimulating environment for children to learn and socialize, guiding them to make kind, respectful choices in their school community. Children are challenged to explore the classroom space through a variety of age appropriate themed activities.
Early Childhood Education
At Walpole Village School we offer a flexible schedule to meet the needs of many. Our morning early preschool and preschool programs offers a variety of play based activities to help children explore the world around us while learning social/emotional skills, early literacy and math skills. After our traditional early preschool program ends at 11 AM, we offer lunch and nap time for children that stay for the full day.
In addition we offer an afternoon preschool program this is ideal for children that are attending the public pre-k program at Walpole Primary School and those that are no longer napping and are trying to adjust to a full day program. Children still have the opportunity for rest and naps as needed.
