Welcome to Kindergarten 2018

We have started planning for your child's entrance into kindergarten, and are excited to share this information with you. To begin, Wayland offers high quality options to families for its kindergarten students. They include our Full Day program, our Spanish Immersion program, our Traditional program, and our BASE Explorer's program for students enrolled in the traditional program:
* Our Full Day Kindergarten program runs from 8:45 A.M. – 3:15 P.M. with an early dismissal on Wednesdays at 2:05 P.M.  The full day kindergarten program is a fee-based program. The tuition for the 2018-19 School Year is $3,400. * Our Spanish Immersion program is a full day option that runs from 8:45 A.M. – 3:15 P.M. with an early dismissal on Wednesdays at 2:05 P.M.  This program is also fee-based with a $3,400 tuition.  Enrollment in this program will be decided by a lottery, choosing from students whose registration was entered during the required registration window. * Our Traditional Kindergarten program runs daily from 8:45 A.M. - 12:20 P.M.  There is no fee for this program. * Our BASE Explorers is an option only for students enrolled in the traditional program.  This program begins at 12:20 P.M. and continues until the end of the regular school hours (3:15 P.M. every day except Wednesday which ends at 2:05 P.M.).  Students may be enrolled for 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week.
