Integrated Preschool Program 2023-2024
The Marlboro Township School District will now offer a full day integrated preschool program for three and four year olds who are residents of Marlboro. The program is designed to bring preschoolers, with and without special needs, together in an integrated environment. Research has shown that all students benefit from this type of program. Please note children must be toilet trained by the first day of school and be fluent in English.
Sessions are held five days per week at the David C. Abbott Early Learning Center.
The hours are 9:30am-3:30pm. Parents are responsible for transportation of preschool students without special needs.
Enrollment is open to a limited number of preschool students without special needs, who are selected via a lottery process. All students will be chosen and numbered in the order of the lottery selection. Based on the number of openings, children who qualify are offered enrollment in the program. The remaining qualified children are placed on a waiting list.
The lottery drawing will be held at the David C. Abbott Early Learning Center on Monday, March 27, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. To qualify, students who have attained the age of 3 or 4 on or before September 6, 2023 and have not met the age requirement to enter kindergarten are eligible.
Children who were selected for the three year old program this past year will be given priority to enroll in next year’s four year old program.
Tuition for the program is $7,400 for the year. If placement is offered and accepted, parents/guardians are responsible for a $1,400 non-refundable deposit, as well as four additional tuition payments of $1,500. Parents may choose to make one payment for the entire cost or pay the tuition in installments. Payments should be made by check and payable to the Marlboro Township Board of Education and sent to Mrs. Chris Jelinsky, Marlboro Township Board of Education, 1980 Township Drive, Marlboro, NJ 07746.
