School Schedule and Cost
The school year is from September 3, 2013 through June 2014, Monday through Friday. Half-day and full-day enrollment is available. At this time, we ask that your child sign up for a minimum of 3 half days.
In general, our school calendar will follow that of the Lenox School District calendar. When Lenox School District closes due to inclement weather, the Austen Riggs Nursery School will also be closed.
Recognizing that we are opening as a new Nursery School program, we want to respond to parent and child needs to the greatest extent possible regarding our schedule. If these hours don't fit your family's needs, please don't hesitate to let us know. We'll be as flexible as possible.
