Millburn Township Public Schools is pleased to announce the annual opening of applications for its Integrated Preschool Program. The Millburn Integrated Preschool program has been a valuable service to the community since September 1993. The Millburn Township Public Schools’ Preschool Integrated Program will be located at the South Mountain Elementary School, 2 Southern Slope Drive, Millburn. The unique program consists of children with special needs as well as typically developing preschool children from the township. A general Preschool Curriculum is followed for all students.
All preschool sessions are two and one-half hour classes, Monday through Friday. The three-year-old program runs for 2 ½ hours in the morning from 8:15 am to 10:45 am. The four-year-old program runs for 2 ½ hours in the afternoon from 12:15 pm to 2:45 pm. The cost of tuition is $425 per month (2021-2022 school year).
Regular education students must submit an application to be eligible to attend the program. Applicants must be three years of age on or before October 1, 2021, and fully toilet trained as of the start of school in September. There are approximately 16 openings at the three-year-old level. The four-year-old program is automatically populated with returning students from the previous three-year-old class. Applications for four-year-old students will be accepted solely for placement on a waitlist. If an opening becomes available due to a student leaving the program, the waitlist is utilized.
Applications will be available at the Millburn Education Center, 434 Millburn Avenue, Millburn, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., from January 4 to February 2, 2021, or on the Millburn School District’s website at https://www.millburn.org/apps/pages/PreSchool_Program.
