We are always happy to welcome new families to our school!
Over the past 50 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, however we invite you contact us at any time to inquire about openings in the current or upcoming school year.
If you are looking for placement for the 2020-2021 year or the 2021-2022 school year, please contact Sharon Lenfest at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Preschool office at 203-226-4616.
Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year has already begun, but openings are still available in several classes! Open House Events are typically scheduled in mid-October and families with children already enrolled in the program are given priority enrollment for the upcoming school year. Applications for new families typically begin being accepted in mid-November and are considered in the order received. You may contact us at any time during the school year or summer months to inquire about openings or to schedule a tour.
For those families facing financial challenges, we offer partial Financial Aid Assistance, on the basis of need. Financial Aid Applications for the 2021-22 school year were due in January and funds were allocated at that time. Families seeking enrollment after this time, however, may submit an application to be considered for any remaining funds available. All information received will be kept strictly confidential.
