The Stanwich School is pleased to announce Wildwood Cottage: Stanwich School’s PreK & K Learning Center, which will open in September of 2014 (in honor of the historic estate’s original name - Wildwood Farm). Wildwood Cottage will provide a nurturing environment within a challenging elementary educational program for boys and girls in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. The cottage’s curriculum takes full advantage of the environmental resources right outside our doors, while our exceptional faculty help students develop a lifelong love of learning.
To introduce the community to the new facility and program, parents and children are invited to attend an Open House Play Date on Friday, January 31 from 12:30-2:00pm at 247 Stanwich Road, where children will enjoy a light lunch, interactive songs and a visit from Animal Embassy.
“As an administrator, and as a Stanwich PreK parent, I am very excited about the program we are creating for our youngest students at Wildwood Cottage. It will be a robust continuation of the exemplary approach Stanwich’s Lower School is known for, while affording us the fortuity to explore new opportunities,” said Meaghan Mallin, Head of Lower School and parent of a Stanwich PreK student.
In the fall, Stanwich announced that it will be relocating its Upper School Campus from Stamford to its 40 acre Greenwich campus for the 2014-2015 school year, making Stanwich the only PreK through Grade 12 coeducational independent school in Greenwich. As part of this next step in the school’s growth, Wildwood Cottage will be located next door to Stanwich’s educational buildings in a 5,000 square foot space at St. Agnes Church.
Stanwich is now accepting applications for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten children ages three and-a-half and older. For more information, or to RSVP to the Open House, visit www.stanwichschool.org
