Harding Township School Inclusion Preschool Program
The Harding Township School District accepts applications from families in our community who are interested in having their three- or four-year-old child attend our Inclusion Preschool Program. The preschool is comprised of both children with special needs and typically developing preschoolers. In order to be eligible, children must reach age three prior to October 1, 2019 and must be toilet trained.
Our program will begin the first day of school in September 2020 and follows the school district calendar. The “Husky Pups” class meets five days a week for two hours and forty-five minutes in the a.m. (8:30-11:15) or the p.m. (12:15-3:00). Parents wishing to send their child for lunch prior to the afternoon session may elect to have their child arrive at 11:45 a.m. Tuition for the a.m. or p.m. session is $3,950 to be paid in ten monthly installments. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the Harding Elementary School.
We maintain a low student-teacher ratio and use a multi-sensory, interdisciplinary curriculum to promote school readiness skills. Our typical schedule includes Morning Calendar, small group activities centered on language acquisition, fine and gross motor skills and play time. In addition, students participate in specials such as Art, Music and P.E., “Husky Pups” also enjoy exciting experiences throughout the year, such as a visit from the New Vernon Volunteer Fire Department, a field trip to Crewe Hill Horse Stables, hatching chicks in the classroom, and cooking lessons.
You may find the registration form on the next tab. Return the form to the Student Services Office across from the Main Office in the Middle School building. We will begin accepting applications on March 2, 2020.
