WILTON — As distance learning gets underway in earnest for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, what about Wilton’s youngest students — the 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds who attend preschool? Their schools — the ones that follow the Wilton public schools — are all closed as well, but why they are home may be a bit bewildering to them.
“This is a loss to them,” said Pam Ely, director of the Children’s Day School of Wilton. “They’re not going to school, not seeing their teacher, not seeing their buddies. The explanation [of coronavirus] to a 2-year-old is ridiculous.”
