Preschool Application for Children Ages 3 and 4 in East Hanover

Applications for the East Hanover Township School District’s 3-year-old preschool class and 4-year-old preschool class for the 2020-2021 school year are now open.  Please note that space in our 4-year-old class is very limited. All children must turn Age 3 or Age 4 by October 1, 2020, and must be toilet trained. Alternately, students who do not meet this cut off may be eligible to attend on their third birthday should there be room in the preschool classes. Please contact Central School if you wish to inquire about this option and space during the school year.

Both programs are 2.5 hours per day and are held five days a week.  The 3-year-old program is held in the morning and the 4-year-old program is held in the afternoon. Transportation is not provided. 

The annual tuition rate, application, and information are available on the East Hanover Township Schools’ website at www.easthanoverschools.org.  Click on Departments and then Preschool Program. There you will see the link for Preschool Application for the 20-21 school year.

Enrollment, for both sections, is limited and may need to be determined by a lottery drawing. Students currently enrolled in the preschool program will be guaranteed a spot once their application is submitted. Applications, with a deposit, are due by Thursday, April 9, 2020.  The lottery drawing, if needed, will occur on Friday, May 8, 2020, for any additional openings in the preschool classes.
