The preschool years are a special time in the life of a young child. During this time children grow in many ways. We are very excited about being a part of that growing and learning process with your child. Our preschool program provides a safe and nurturing learning environment that focuses on enhancing the child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills.

We offer certified teachers and highly competent instructional aides as well as a small class size for your child. Just like you, we want what is best for your child. By working together we can provide a wonderful preschool experience for your child.

We believe that…
  • All children can learn
  • Learning occurs in the context of positive, supportive relationships between child and adult
  • Problem prevention and resiliency building in the form of effective curriculum, instruction and learning environment in preschool will result in future school success
  • Necessary supports and services provided to children are based on accomplishments and needs of the child
  • Families are first educators and partners in successful outcomes for their children
  • Diversity is valued for inspiring the human spirit
Early Childhood Advisory Council

The mission of the Early Childhood Advisory Council is to create a nurturing environment that supports community partnerships, strengthens families and prepares children to be lifelong learners. Home, school and community partners will work together to the benefit of Winslow Township’s young children.

The purpose of the council is to serve as an advisory board to the administration of the Winslow Township School District and provide all early childhood providers, within Winslow Township, with opportunities to link to school district programs. Members of the council will be encouraged to participate in discussion groups and to offer staff member’s opportunities to participate in school district professional development activities. As home, school and community partnerships are formed and solidified, we will work collaboratively to further develop the following:
  • Winslow Township school district’s Early Childhood Operational Plan;
  • A bridge between non-public school and public school, primary school educational programs;
  • Increase the extent of educational experiences for all of Winslow Township’s young children;
  • And, increase participation, throughout the community, between the school district and other community organizations and parents of young children.

If you are interested in participating in the growth and development of the early childhood programs, and would like to become involved in our district’s Council, please contact us.
