In addition to having NJ State certified teachers, we also have a full time Nurse on staff to ensure the well-being and safety of our kids.

 

Kindergarteners enjoy outstanding curriculum in our state-of-the-art classrooms featuring discovery-oriented science and math programs, language and literature program (including sign language and Spanish), weekly swim and gym classes at the Summit YMCA, access to computers and iPads, community service opportunities, gross motor activities, first grade preparation and more.
