West End Day School
West End Day School
Teachers work hand-in-hand with social workers and other specialists to respond as a team to all aspects of a child's development.
Children flourish here. It's a place where successful bonds are formed, that perhaps did not develop in other settings. And because children are given the tools and techniques to feel safe, they have fun and make friends, often for the first time; and experience a sense of achievement and accomplishment.
Our Mission
Originally founded in 1917 as a day nursery program for children of working mothers, West End Day School evolved in the 1980's into a small, nurturing, specialized school for children who were not well served by the conventional system.
The goal was to provide capable but vulnerable children with a place to learn and grow. Today, the mission of our small dynamic program is to provide an academic elementary school education to bright, academically inclined children with learning and social issues.
A Community of Caring
With a true partnership among teachers and specialists, West End Day School integrates curriculum and support programs so that children can address and resolve issues as they arise. Our focus is on creating constructive pathways with each child and in each classroom. The team approach allows us to assess both educational and emotional development and form individualized plans taking the whole child into consideration.
Children are encouraged to work towards personal goals. They learn to follow rules and engage in appropriate interchanges with peers and adults. Teachers and therapists help children manage their feelings with the goal of making good social and academic choices.
Community is about sharing fun experiences and special school-wide events such as Field Day, the Halloween Carnival and the Thanksgiving Feast. We encourage parents, teachers and students to forge bonds of friendship and trust, which could not be created solely in a classroom environment.
Academic Curriculum
West End Day School brings children ages 5-12 into a new kind of classroom - one that is not overwhelming. Classes, typically up to ten students, are designed by academic and social capability. A full curriculum is based on New York State guidelines covering kindergarten through grade six. Students are assessed by a WEDS team of educators and specialists. With the needs of individual students in mind, the classroom curriculum which includes reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and computer is developed. These core subjects are supplemented with physical education, art and music.
After School Activities
After school is an opportunity to be with friends in a more informal setting for a different kind of learning. Programs are developed each year in response to the needs and desires of parents and children. Our own faculty leads many of the activities, building on the familiarity and trust the children have formed with them and maximizing our in-house talents and expertise. Outside professionals are also contracted depending on the activity. Offerings vary but regularly include computers (supplemental activities), cooking, drama, ice-skating, puppetry, roller-blading, swimming, soccer and homework help.
Additional Enrichment Classes: Our program is flexible and other enrichment classes during school may be added according to demand during any given school year. Currently, chess and yoga are offered weekly.
