Q: Why is HSW's program 2 days for 3/4's and 3 days for Pre-K?
A: We are often approached about extending our program from three to five days. We believe our three day program is better for children. Preschool age children's minds and bodies are not ready for a strenuous program. Studies have shown that pushing children academically too soon can have a negative impact on their academic career.
