We will follow the Downingtown School District's school closings due to snow or icy conditions.

  • If Downingtown School District closes for the day, Great Beginnings will also be closed for the day.
  • If Downingtown opens on a two-hour delay, our preschool morning classes will attend from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm. Kindergarten morning classes attend from 10:45am until 12:45pm. The afternoon preschool session will begin at 1:30 pm and dismiss at 3:00pm. Kindergarten Extended Day session will begin at 1:30pm and dismiss at 3:00 pm. Lunch & fun will meet from 12:30-1:30pm and K Ext Day will meet from 1:30-3:00pm.
  • If Downingtown announces an early dismissal due to the weather, we will follow the elementary school dismissal time. If the dismissal is announced prior to the beginning of our afternoon session, that session is cancelled.

In the event of an unusual weather circumstance that causes Great Beginnings Administration to make a schedule change different from the general policy above, parents will be individually contacted by phone or email.

If you are a West Chester Kindergarten bus student - there is NO bus transportation for a 2 hour delay.  Parents will be responsible for driving your child to/from school.  If you are a Downingtown Kindergarten bus student - there IS bus transportation TO school operating on a 2-hour delay.

The Great Beginnings Preschool calendar consists of 31 weeks of instruction. The Kindergarten calendar year consists of 450 instructional hours. The individual class schedules accommodate an allowance for snow cancellations. In the event that an unusual number of days is missed, makeup days will be added at the end of the school year.
