Preschool Program

Our goal is to provide a high quality preschool program to the Lakehurst Community.

The classroom environment is specifically designed to create centers of learning. In each classroom, you will find a variety of interest and play areas. Some of these centers include: Dramatic play, Blocks, Toys & Games, Library, Art, Discovery, Writing, Listening, Technology, Cozy area. Each classroom is set up for exploration and learning. Children have many opportunities to make choices, experiment, and interact with others. Materials are labeled and well organized, also low on shelves for children to access them independently. Similar materials are grouped together to teach children to sort and classify.

How do we assess our Preschool students?

Our curriculum incorporates 38 learning objectives as the basis of everything we do and what we plan for in the classroom. These learning objectives span from birth through third grade. They cover 10 content areas of development and learning. Teachers collect documentation related to these objectives by creating a digital portfolio of observations, anecdotes, videos, work samples and pictures. Then, they use this documentation to assess each child’s development and learning along a progression across the whole of the early childhood years.

Please access the Pre-Registration Module to begin the registration process for your child(ren) for the upcoming 2023-2024 School Year.
