    "The ability to read, write, and analyze; the confidence to stand up and demand justice and equality; the qualifications and connections to get your foot in that door and take your seat at that table – all of that starts with education” -Michelle Obama 

    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. It is a strong belief of ours at OECC that each student and teacher are an integral part of the community, they are accountable members of the school. When we set high expectations for learning in a nurturing, positive environment, children thrive and feel successful. Together we can ensure that every student is provided the highest quality education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.

    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. 52700 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.
