MONTVILLE, NJ – Having been delayed twice due to this winter's onslaught of snow storms, Montville Township Public School District will now hold the Integrated Pre-School Open House on Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 7- 9 p.m.

The Montville Township Public School District hosts an innovative pre-school located at Valley View Elementary School. Aligned with the New Jersey Department of Education’s guidelines for high-quality early childhood education, the district’s Integrated Pre-School is designed to promote the academic, social and emotional development of all pre-school children.

“Our inclusive pre-school is an exciting educational environment,” explained Patricia Stryker, supervisor of Special Services. “Our comprehensive, child-centered, approach helps all students learn and prepare to successfully transition into kindergarten.”

Three and 4-year-olds who attend the Montville Township Integrated Pre-School have access to the Montville school district’s extensive resources, such as school assemblies, special programs, school wide events, theme days and field trips. Weekly instruction in art, music and media is taught by certified faculty members. Two fully certified pre-school teachers and two paraprofessionals work in the classroom and the class sizes are small. In addition, weekly lessons are facilitated by a certified Speech and Language Specialist to enhance language development. A certified Occupational and Physical Therapist also teaches weekly lessons to enhance fine and gross motor development.

The Montville Township Integrated Pre-School Program follows a state approved early childhood curriculum and accepts students with and without special needs. The program consists of three half-day sessions per week for three-year-olds and five half-day sessions per week for four-year-olds.

Registration is now open, and enrollment is limited.

The Montville Township Integrated Pre-School Open House is now scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 7-9 p.m. at Valley View Elementary School, 30 Montgomery Avenue, Montville.
