February, 2017: Nantucket Community School is currently supervising the NCS Wee Whalers childcare and preschool programs located at 16 Newtown Road. This program will be in place through August, 2017.
We are accepting new students to our Minnows and Dolphins classes. Please click here to be added to the wait list.
October 4, 2016: “Following the closure of Wee Whalers, the Nantucket Public School District has been working in cooperation with the state Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) to re-open the facility under the auspices of the Nantucket Community School. The School District has entered into a lease for the physical property through the end of August 2017 and has applied for a licensing exemption from EEC. As a result, it is expected that the Nantucket Community School will open Wee Whalers under a new administration within the next two weeks.”
