We Are Delighted You Are Exploring Christ & Holy Trinity Preschool.


Over the past 30 years, Christ & Holy Trinity Preschool has been an integral part of Westport’s community and has enjoyed a long tradition as a leading preschool. We invite you and your family to visit with us and tour the school grounds.

The formal admissions process begins a year in advance of a child’s attendance. Tours commence in mid­-October and applications are due in mid­-November. Acceptance letters are posted soon thereafter. You may also contact us during the school year or summer months to inquire about openings or to schedule a tour. We are always happy to welcome new families to our school!!

For those families facing financial burdens, we offer partial Financial Aid Assistance, on the basis of need. This process occurs at the end of November. Signed contracts and the first tuition payments are due for families receiving Assistance by mid-­December. All information received will be kept strictly confidential.

In case of snow, if the Westport Public Schools have a delay, Christ & Holy Trinity Preschool will open at 10:30. If Westport Public Schools are closed, we are also closed. The Westport Snowline is 203.341.1766. Parents are responsible for regularly checking announcements on WNLK 1350 AM and Cablevision Channel 12 for updates regarding school closings. This will serve as your only formal notification that the Preschool is cancelled.

In the event of unusual weather that develops while children are in the Preschool, the administration will email parents regarding early dismissal. If the administration is unable to reach a parent or emergency contact, the Director and another staff member will remain at the Preschool until contact is made.

All weather-related school closings and delays will not be made-up.
