WARREN, NJ - The Warren Township School District is now accepting applications for the school district's integrated preschool classes for 3- and 4-year-old Warren Township children for the 2014-15 school year, to begin next fall. Integrated classes are made up of students both with and without special needs.
The program follows the Creative Curriculum for Preschool, which is aligned with the state curriculum standards in order to prepare students for kindergarten. The program serves children who are typically developing and those with special needs. The curriculum addresses skills and concepts in the following content areas: literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology.
Enrollment in the program is limited.
To be eligible, children must turn 3- or 4-years-old on or before Oct. 1, 2014.
The classes for both age groups are held at Mount Horeb School, located at 80 Mount Horeb Road, on Mondays through Thursdays.
The three-year-old session is from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and the four-year-old class is 12:30 to 3 p.m. The cost for this program is $250 per month and includes busing.
An open house for the program is scheduled to be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Jan. 10 at Mount Horeb School.
Applications for September 2014 enrollment will be available during the open house, and also at the Board of Education Office, 213 Mount Horeb Road.
Completed applications should be returned to the Board of Education Office no later than January 24, 2014. Students will be selected on a lottery basis.
