2-Day & 3-Day Programs

2-Day & 3-Day Programs

2 and 3 Day ProgramWe have two programs available to our students: the 2-Day group and 3-Day group. Children in the 2-Day group include those who have or will turn three years of age by December 31 of the current school year. The children in the 3-Day group include those who have or will turn four years of age by December 31 of the current school year. This prepares children for kindergarten following two years at Quaker Lane , in accordance with the Connecticut model.


  • 3-day Group: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (includes lunchtime)
  • 2-day Group: Tuesday, Thursday 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., with an option to enroll in our Lunch Bunch Program which runs from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m.


Our school calendar is similar to the West Hartford Public School calendar with a few exceptions; our beginning, ending and holiday recess dates are different. A detailed calendar is distributed prior to each school year. If updates are required, they will be in the monthly website or on this website.

Lunch Bunch Program
Commonly referred to as “lunch bunch”, our extended day is an optional and very popular program at Quaker Lane for children in our 2-day program. The children have lunch in small groups with their peers followed by unstructured playtime. Lunch bunch promotes social learning in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Close friendships are often formed in the lunch bunch setting. Each session is supervised by two teachers and is limited to 12 children.

The session begins immediately following the normal dismissal time and runs from 12 – 1 pm. Children bring in their own nut-free lunches.
