Kindergarten Wrap Program

The Lincoln Early Childhood Center is fortunate to supplement the Kindergarten half-day program with the Wrap Program.  The Wrap Program is designed to extend the school day with enrichment activities including science experiments, math games, reading and writing centers, outdoor play, and free-choice time. Wrap students remain at Lincoln School for lunch, which is provided from home. Students are frequently brought outdoors for play and exploration, so it is important they are appropriately dressed for the weather.  Lincoln School’s Wrap Coordinators send home monthly newsletters recapping fun learning activities as well as providing notice of upcoming events.

Families will have the opportunity to request a spot in the tuition-based Lincoln School Wrap Program upon successful completion of the Kindergarten registration process, including the submission of all required medical forms. Please take note of the following important dates:

Monday, March 1, 2021
Applications for the Wrap Program will be directly sent to families who have successfully completed the Kindergarten registration process. A lottery system will be held if more families are interested than the number of spots available.  The Wrap Program application must be completed by Friday, March 5, 2021 at 8 AM in order to enter the lottery.

Friday, March 5, 2021
A lottery for enrollment in the Wrap Program for the 2021-22 school year will be held.

Families who have secured a spot in the Wrap Program will be notified.  A $400 nonrefundable deposit is due to the Business Office at the Westfield Board of Education by Friday March 12, 2021. Payment may be made by personal check payable to the Westfield Board of Education (write your child’s name and “Wrap Deposit 21-22” in the memo) or through the MySchoolBucks payment portal.
*Note for MySchoolBucks users: Please do not click “add a student”; add your child’s name next to “student name”.

Families who have not secured a spot in the Wrap Program via the lottery system will be notified. A waitlist will be created for those families who do not initially secure enrollment via the lottery system.  Families from the waitlist will be contacted and enrolled in the Wrap Program as spots become available throughout the spring and summer.

Friday, March 12, 2021
A nonrefundable deposit of $400 is due to the Business Office. Families who do not pay the deposit by this date will forfeit their spot in the Wrap Program. Forfeited spots will be offered to families on the waitlist.
