Space Available in Livingston's Preschool PRIDE Program


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.
