For some reason, NESDEC — the organization that does yearly enrollment projections for the Westport Public Schools — recently contacted the Town School Office looking for background info.
One question was: What year was kindergarten first offered in our schools?
The answer is: No one is sure.
Records trace Westport kindergarten back to 1953 — but they’re incomplete before that.
So, “06880” readers: If you attended kindergarten here any year before Dwight Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth II took over, click “Comments” and tell us when.
Inquiring minds — and NESDEC — want to know.
