Due to the snow day on January 17, 2017, the Early Release Day scheduled for Monday, January 22nd has been moved to Tuesday, January 23rd to accommodate a change in the high school exam schedule. All dismissal times will remain the same. 

Extended Day

The Ash-West Extended Day Program provides quality before and after school care on both full and early-release days, professional development days and vacation weeks/summer programs.  Our programs are for children of Ashburnham & Westminster residents, kindergarten through grade 6 and we are open from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM. The Extended Day Program is located in shared space in the JR Briggs Elementary School and Westminster Elementary School. Residents of the surrounding towns may participate in our summer vacation program if space is available. 



The philosophy of the program is to provide a warm, supportive, and safe environment for those children needing care before and/or after the school day and vacation weeks, as well as for families looking for socialization/recreational/educational opportunities for their children.  The Director and staff create a stimulating environment that includes a variety of fun and educational experiences, both indoors and outdoors to enhance your child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
