LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston Public Schools has announced that space is available for general education pre-school students, ages three to five, in its PRIDE (Pre-school Readiness Individual Developmental Education) pre-school program. 

In this program, students will be provided with a language rich, research-based curriculum. They will spend their days with New Jersey certified teachers, and with their disabled and non-disabled peers, to achieve the expectations of the school district’s well-designed curriculum based on New Jersey’s pre-school standards. The students gather daily to develop social language, work as partners and in groups, and explore, play, create, share, and learn. 

PRIDE is located at Burnet Hill Elementary School and offers two sessions: 8:05 a.m. to 10:35 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The program runs five days per week on the school calendar for either the morning or afternoon session.

Students will be assigned to a section based upon age, skill, and preference. For the 2018-2019 school year, the half-day classes are for children who turn three or four before Oct. 1, 2018. 

Currently, the cost for students selected by lottery is $3,000 a year. A birth certificate, copy of immunization and proof of Livingston residency will be required of those students admitted to the program.

Students who would like to be considered for general education pre-school classes must file an application by Friday, Feb. 9, at noon. Applications are available at the offices of Livingston Public Schools, located at 11 Foxcroft Drive, or on the “Student Services” page of the school district’s website, www.livingston.org.

Applicants will be notified of their child’s status no later than Friday, Feb. 16.
