Welcome to the Early Childhood Preschool Program! The preschool team
has created a successful active learning environment where all students
are given the opportunity to blossom into innovative learners prepared to
thrive in the Twenty-First Century. As principal of the Early Childhood
Program, I would like to welcome you to a new school year. I anticipate an
educational journey that will instill a love for learning in each and
every student. I am on currently on an FMLA leave, but our team of
administrators are available to ensure that you and your child have a
smooth transition to a successful school year.
The West New York Early Childhood Program provides a high quality preschool program located at Early Childhood School, School Four Annex, Public School 1, Public School 2, Robert Menendez Elementary School 3, Albio Sires Public School 4, Public School 5, as well as twelve childcare providers. Catapult Learning and childcare providers also offer information about the requirements for the students to participate in before and after care services.
It is a priority for our highly motivated staff members to provide a safe, active learning environment where all students are given developmentally appropriate opportunities to communicate, make inquiries, and explore learning materials in order to stimulate higher order thinking and reasoning skills. The curriculum, “Tools of the Mind”, is a researched-based educational curriculum designed to provide rich, academic experiences that foster the foundation for cognitive, emotional and physical development needed for learning success. We look forward to enhancing our assessment of each individual learner with the implementation of Teaching Strategies Gold. Our classrooms have low teacher to student ratio in order to meet the individualized instruction needed for each student.
We also look forward to working with families and the community to encourage a strong home/school connection to ensure that our students reach their highest potential. Monthly parent workshops will be provided throughout the school year. We hope to see you there!
The preschool team is committed in providing a high quality educational program that will empower our young learners to become innovative thinkers. I am honored to serve as the principal and look forward to the opportunity in assisting all students and their families upon my return. Please contact the Assistant Principal, Ms. Amada Sanjuan if you need guidance.
Thank you for your support.
Cara Zebrowski, Principal
