“If you’re going to equalize the academic playing field, you’ve got to get the kids in early childhood programs” Paul Vallas
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire staff, I welcome you to The Preschool Place & Kindergarten, our outstanding school located in Somerset County, NJ! We are very happy to have you as part of our school family where we will work together for the benefit of your children. Our mission is to provide each child with a positive school experience while promoting their social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. The early years are learning years, and at The Preschool Place and Kindergarten your children will grow to their fullest potential.
In our school learning takes place in a child-centered environment. We are dedicated to providing a happy and nurturing atmosphere in which children can develop a positive self-image and love of learning. The curriculum is diverse and flexible, offering a varied and developmentally appropriate choice of activities. Our interactive programs build the foundation for reading, language arts, math, science and social studies. “STEAM,” the new initiative in curriculum development, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Our school proudly includes all of these components in our programs.
The children are valued as able, worthy individuals and are encouraged to develop singular talents and abilities while they are learning to be part of a group. Each child is offered unlimited possibilities to learn and grow through play, to try new activities, meet new challenges and to feel secure in a school environment.
We believe that parents are partners in learning and encourage you to become involved in school activities. “The Parent Connection,” is the home and school association for The Preschool Place and Kindergarten. This offers you many opportunities to participate in your child’s preschool experience as well as a great way to meet other parents and make new friends.
Our program is licensed by the State of New Jersey, Division of Children and Families. We meet the highest standards in early childhood education, and for that we are extremely proud.
Any day is a good day to stop by for a tour. My staff and I invite you to visit anytime.
We hope to see you soon!
With warmest regards,
Carol Rubnitz, Director
