The Early Childhood Program in Orange is dedicated to providing a high quality education to all of its students through a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate program.  We believe that the early learning years lay the foundation for children's educational success in school and in life.  Our goal is to maximize the development of all children in order for them to reach their greatest potential.  We believe that all children can learn and will learn in a warm, positive learning environment where the expectations are high and the excuses are low.


    We believe in bridging the gap between school and home by building a protective hedge around our students as they learn to freely explore, create, think, problem solve, make mistakes and learn to play in a safe and supportive environment.


    We have the charge of educating the youngest learners in the district and we do not take that lightly.  We are committed to "Keeping Children First!"


    If you are concerned that your preschool child is developing or learning differently, you can call the district's Special Education and Related Services Department at 973-677-4000 ext. 6024 to request an evaluation.


    My Staff and I would like to welcome you to Preschool in Orange, it is pleasure and an honor to serve the children and families in this great town.
