Preschool Inclusion Program
Dear Bergenfield Parents,
Once again the Bergenfield Board of Education will be offering the Integrated Preschool Program for the 2013-2014 school year.
This program is open to all Bergenfield children ages 3 and 4 years old by October 1, 2013 who are toilet trained.
This program will be housed at Lincoln School and will feature two sessions; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The 3 year old morning session will start at 8:51 a.m. and end at 11:14 a.m. The 4 year old afternoon session will start at 12:42 p.m. and end at 3:05 p.m. (one space available in the 4 year old session.)
The classes will be taught by a certified teacher with two paraprofessionals in the room. This program is an integral part of The Bergenfield Board of Education plan to develop programs which will help our present and future students. The Bergenfield Board of Education recognizes the importance of a quality early childhood education program for the youngest members of our community. This program, based on proven research, will provide the children of Bergenfield with an excellent child-centered curriculum. This program is designed to provide the supports and services needed for our students to be prepared to succeed academically and socially in school. We will be using the Creative Curriculum for Preschool which is aligned with the NJ Preschool Teaching Learning: Standards of Quality.
There will be a fee of $250 for non-classified youngsters due at the time of application. This fee will be returned if for any reason the district is unable to accept a child. The tuition for this 10 month program is $2,250. The application fee will be applied to reduce the monthly tuition. If interested, you may download a brochure and application from our website under the Programs and Services- Preschool Inclusion Program TAB or go to your local school main office. If you have further questions, please contact Dr. Arthur Freiman, Director of Pupil Personnel Services, at 201-385-6956 or Mrs. MaryAnne DeVivio, Assistant Superintendent of Schools at 201-385-6250.
We are looking forward to working with your child in this first step of their educational journey. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
