HAPPY 2020

Happy New Year to you all. This is going to be a great year, especially at CWG-WWS. We started out our month with our 4 year old classes exploring the author of the month Jan Brett. The illustrations in her books are stunning and go along with our winter themes. Books such as The Mitten, The Hat and Home for Christmas are wonderful stories filled with beautiful artwork.

All of our classes have been exploring the beautiful season of Winter. They have talked  about Winter, Snowflakes, Skating, Penguins and Snow people among many other topics. Our three year old classes have been learning all about bears this month. The topics of Brown bears, Polar bears and hibernation are filling their days with learning and experiments. Who wouldn’t want to make a snow cave out of sugar cubes for our Polar Bear Day and also float Polar bears on ice creations floating  in the water table.Their month will culminate with a Teddy Bear Picnic. This will be a day they can share with their favorite bear or stuffed animal and will end with a picnic along with their animals for snack.

The color of the month will be blue and the children will be finger painting with bright blue paint. Lots of creating will be going on with that activity.

The children  learned about Martin Luther King and talked about  kindness on that day. They did a project that was entitled “be the I in kind”. On that day they actually did an experiment with eggs that came from two of our children’s chickens. They were all different colors. The point was that although they looked different from the outside, they were all the same on the inside. Below are pictures of the experiment.









What a wonderful thought to keep in mind!

We look forward to the rest of the month experimenting and learning about all different things about Winter. We wish you a month filled with kindness.

We are currently conducting tours and registering for the fall of 2020. Please give us a call at 882-1041 to set up a tour and we will be very happy to show you around and answer any questions you have.

Warm regards,


Busy month in October

Hello all,

Welcome to October at CWG-WWS!! We are definitely in store for an event filled month here at our school. We seriously can’t believe that the month of September is over and we have entered Autumn. What a beautiful time of year in New England. The children have already gone on a Buddy Bird Watch to reinforce the letter B. They came back in with their pockets filled with acorns, leaves and of course rocks. They made collages with all their treasures and examined them under a magnifying glass. Our 4 year olds also went on field trips to Brookdale Farms where they went on a hayride, did some apple picking (and tasting) and navigated their way through a corn maze. They had so much fun.

We have quite a few visitors coming this month including a photographer to take the children’s pictures, a former Fire Chief, the Amherst St. Firefighters with their trucks and Miss Kim who will be starting our weekly music class among many others. Habitat for Humanity will come to our school and the children will be painting some paddles for their 25th anniversary auction. We love to become involved in community events.

Open House will be a big event this month. All the children’s artwork will be showcased and parents will get a chance to further explore the classrooms, talk with teachers and meet and chat with other parents.

The end of the month brings such a fun celebration. This is one that the children love and we will be doing lots of celebrating. Halloween activities will be going on during the last week of October and on the 30th and 31st the children will wear their costumes and parents are invited for a Halloween parade.

So all in all, this will be a fantastic month. Happy October to you all!!

Warm regards,



Welcome to the 2019 school year at CWG-WWS


We are off to a wonderful start here at CWG-WWS. The children’s first week is quickly coming to an end and it feels like we just walked in the door. What a great bunch of families we have at our school. We would like to thank all who were able to donate paper products to our school to start us up. We go through a lot of paper towels that’s for sure. In all of our classes we are concentrating on getting to know each other. What goes on in our classroom, what centers have what kind of activities, what do we do during Circle Time and when do we go outside are common questions. The most popular question is “When is snack time?” Speaking of eating snack, apples will be a topic on some of our days. We will be taste testing apples. Red ones, green ones, golden ones…which is your favorite and then of course we will have to graph the results. Who likes what and which one is the favorite are some things to think about and compare.

In our 4 year old classes our author of the month will be introduced. Norman Bridwell, who writes all of the Clifford books will be our first author. The children love Clifford, the big red dog. Our 3 year old students will also be learning about Clifford and this goes along with the color of the month which is Red.  A lot of Pete the Cat books will also be read including the book about his new school shoes.

Later in the month our 4 year olds will be venturing out on our first field trip with a visit to Brookdale Farms. They will go on a hayride, navigate the corn maze and pick some apples. What a fun day that will be.

Our youngest children, our little two year olds, are making their way around the classroom. They are so sweet and are learning to make friends and play together. They really are so cute and so ready to learn so much.

All in all it has been truly a wonderful beginning and we are looking forward to another great year.

Warm regards,




Spring is in the air

springbordersWe are so happy to feel a bit of warmth in the air. Children outside playing is the best sound of all. Being able to go outside without all the snow gear is such a wonderful thing. We can’t really complain about this winter in the snow department, but we’re so happy that the sun is out and the children get to go outside so much.

We currently have openings in some of our classes for the 2019-2020 school year. Please give us a call at 603-882-1041 to schedule a tour. I would be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have.

The children started their music classes with Miss Kim today and they had a glorious time. She is wonderful with the children and they all seemed so happy after their classes. We look forward to her weekly visits for the remainder of the year.

Speaking of which, how could this year be almost over? Every year goes by faster and faster and it is hard for us to let go of all the little ones we have grown so fond of. We form such loving bonds with our families and then they are off to the next step in their education.

Happy 2019

Happy New Year to all and we send our wishes for a wonderful year ahead.

Who would think that we would have to be making snow in January? Typically we just go outside and fill a bucket with snow, but…not this year, so far. So for projects our classes are making snow out of all kinds of materials including shaving cream, cotton, ivory snow, ice and water. The children are having lots of fun manufacturing snow, but certainly they would like to put all that snow gear on and play in real snow.

Our month so far has been loads of fun including activities about bears, snow people, mittens, hot chocolate, snowflakes, penguins and lots more. Our letters for the month are I, J and K and we will include a day about Martin Luther King and kindness to go along with the letter K.

Later this month our 3 year old students will culminate their bear unit with a Teddy Bear Picnic. They can bring in their favorite stuffed animal, who will share the day with them and have a picnic for snack.

Our dance classes with Miss Rebecca started this month and the children are enjoying going up to the auditorium and running and dancing to all kinds of fun music. This is great for the children to be able to run and play, as they can’t always go outside when the weather is too cold. We will enjoy Miss Rebecca all this month and February and March. Looking forward to lots of dancing.

So all in all we are looking forward to a wonderfully busy month filled with lots and lots of creative activities.

I am scheduling tours for the 2019-2020 school year. Please give us a call at 603-882-1041 to ask any questions about our programs and we can set up a tour.

Best regards,


Holiday greets from CWG-WWS


How did we get to the mHoliday-Glitters-26onth of December already? The magic is certainly happening at our school. If you drive by the school, you can see trees, lights and candy canes in all the windows. How colorful and festive they look. The children are so proud of their accomplishments, telling me every time I go into the classroom which piece of art is theirs. There is glitter and joy all around!!

Yesterday Rev. Allison came in to read to our classes which was so much fun. She read a beautiful book called The Christmas Wish, which the children truly enjoyed. We thank her for taking time out of her day to join us. What a treat.

The children have been busily practicing songs for their Holiday Performances, later this month. Parents get ready for some awesome singing and adorable props that the children are working hard making. They are also making surprise gifts for their families. Wait until you see them. Beautiful!!

Registration has started with forms going home this week to our current families, alumni and siblings. Registration for the public will start later this month. Please make sure to call for a tour if you are interested in seeing our school. The number is 882-1041 or email me at chrisclanin@comcast.net and I will get back to you to answer any questions you may have. You can look at our section on this website on enrollment and tuitions to see our program offerings and tuition rates for the 2019-2020 school year. 

We wish each and every family a wonderful and joyous Holiday season and we hope you have a wonderful 2019.

Warm regards,


Autumn at CWG-WWS

Hello all,fallletters

We have all settled into our school routine and the children are having so much fun. Many activities are planned for the month of October. Our 4 year olds will venture out on a field trip to Brookdale Fruit Farm in Hollis. They will go on a hayride, find their way through the corn maze and pick some tasty apples to bring back to school. Sounds like a busy morning.

School pictures were taken this week, so the school was filled with lots of smiles. Can’t wait to see how they turn out.

Parents, get ready for a showcase of art on Thursday Oct. 18 for Open House. The children have been working so hard on projects. These will all be on display along with lots of pictures of the children engaging in their daily activities. One of those activities was today. The children were talking about cows and they taste tested three different kinds of milk. After surveying the children, I think the favorite was the chocolate milk. That’s no surprise!!

Welcome to CWG-WWS


Welcome to all of our families. It is great to have all the children here at school. We extend a huge welcome back to our returning students and a warm welcome to our new families.

The first week of school has gone exceptionally well. It’s like the children have all been here for awhile. They seem so comfortable and eager to learn and play. Even our new 2 year old friends are doing such a great job adjusting to their new surroundings. They have been learning “I’m a Little Teapot” and having tea parties to go along with it and they are having so much fun painting. I knew they were painting with green today as there were all little green paint marks on the floor outside their classroom. Always a good sign that they’re having fun.

happysummerHello to all of our families and future families,

What a wonderful year we had in 2017-18. We ended our year with an outdoor day celebration for our 2 and 3 year old students and their families. It was a beautiful day filled with face painting, sand and water play, bubbles, beanbag games, popsicles and all kinds of fun. For our 4 year olds we had an unbelievable graduation filled with songs, artwork, diplomas, cake and lots of family fun. We thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful children with us and for children going off to Kindergarten and Pre K classes we wish you the best. We will certainly miss our families who are moving on and hope that you come back to visit us.


After graduation we had two weeks of summer camp. Our first week was Kids Crazy Concoctions and it was filled with science experiments and activities related to water, volcanoes, rainbows, bugs and the five senses. The experiments were so exciting, predicting outcomes and watching what happens, for example in one experiment, when you add mentos to a bottle of soda. WOW now that was a sight to see. Lots of squeals of excitement and laughter ensued. Our second week of camp was entitled Preschool Picassos. Art abounded during the week decorating smocks, collaging with various materials, painting with a wide variety of textures, creating with nature and even drawing upside down like Michelangelo. Both weeks were unforgettable and we had so much fun with the children.

We had such a great year and we so look forward to our students returning and welcoming new students and families to our school. This ends our second year as a merged school and it is such a wonderful place with so much happiness and laughter. Have a wonderful and sunny summer!

Warm regards,



March at CWG-WWS

Hello to all of our families,

Well I hope that you all are doing ok after yesterday’s storm. This has been an interesting winter, to say the least.

Wacky Wednesday was a huge success with lots and lots of crazy hairdo’s. The children really enjoyed seeing each other and the teacher’s hair so wacky.

I am writing to you to make sure you are aware of various events going on in the classrooms and also things that are going on for families this month. We have a fun month planned and the following are dates to remember:

  • Thursday March 15 Parent Teacher conferences for MIss Meghan & Miss Catherine’s 3 year olds. Sign up genius has gone out to all of you to sign up for times that are convenient for you. If you did not receive this, please let Meghan know so that you can sign up. School will be in session on this day and Mrs. Murphy and Miss Rachael will be subbing in Miss Meghan/Miss Catherine’s room.
  • Monday 3/19-Friday 3/23 we will be hosting a Scholastic Book fair. Nothing better than new books to read. These books are quality books with fair prices and 1/2 of the sale proceeds are distributed among the teachers to purchase books for the classrooms. Mrs. Coumas and I will be at the bookfair in the mornings at drop off, if that is a good time for you and your child to make a purchase. We will be open all during Open House on Thursday evening for families to attend also.
  • Thursday 3/22 from 6:00-7:30pm will be our Spring Open House. Drop by any time between 6 and 7:30 to browse in the classrooms to see the children’s artwork and talk with teachers, myself and other families. Children are invited to come along and can be comfy wearing their pj’s. We will be having a scavenger hunt that will wind around the building going from the classrooms, to the book fair, to a cozy area to read books and then ending in our hall for refreshments. This will be such a fun night. Hope to see everyone there. The whole family is invited.
  • Wednesday 3/21 will be Beach Day for our 4 year old students. The classrooms will be transformed into the “beach” and the children will be making their own sand cups for snack. The children can wear beach gear and bring in beach towels if they would like.

If you did not receive this, please get in touch with your child’s teacher to sign up for a conference. School will not be session on this day, as all teachers will be busy with conferences. This is an adult only time, however if you are bringing your children Mrs. Kupchik and MIss Chrissy will be available to watch your children. All conferences will take place in your child’s classroom except for Miss Meghan & Miss Catherine’s 4’s. They will take place in a conference room on the main floor of the building. As you come into the building from the parking lot take a left and the conferences will take place in room 6 which is the first room on the right.
