Special Events for Chilton House
Times of the year that may affect schedules for parents and students in Chilton House.
ThreeS and FOUR
The first few days of school are shorter days to provide children with a smooth transition into school. Childcare is provided for families who cannot find alternative care for their children on these days. However, we do feel the start to the school year sets the tone for the year and we want to provide each child with an environment that fosters a sense of security and success.Phase-In
Trip to Englewood Boat Basin
Every year the threes take a field trip to the Englewood Boat Basin. All children are required to have a adult meet them at the basin for a pancake picnic and walk along the waterway. The trip occurs during May. Leaving school after returning from the trip is an option and childcare is also available.
Mary Hawkins Fair
The threes and fours create and participate in a fair held the Friday before the Memorial Day holiday. Parents, siblings and families are all invited to the fair which begins at 10 a.m. There are no regular school hours on this day for these students. Every child is expected to have at least one adult present. The date is always the Friday that proceeds the Memorial Day weekend. No childcare is available after the fair.
