Your school age children are eligible to attend public schools at no
cost in the town in which you live. The school year runs from September
through June, although children may enter school during the school year
when you arrive. Public school generally starts with kindergarten for
children age 5, and goes through twelfth grade. The School Department
in the town in which you are living can provide registration information.
WHOI's Committee on Work and Family Life offers information on issues
pertaining to family needs of the Institutions' employees and students. Refer
to their website for resources on summer programs for children in the Woods Hole area,
child care, day care, and elder care.
