    Preschool Program Brochure


    The Flemington-Raritan School District offers a full-day preschool experience for residents of the community who are 3-4 years of age before October 1st of the school year.  The program seeks to provide a safe and nurturing learning experience in which children can play and learn.  Children identified by the Child Study Team as eligible for special education and related services and general education peers are placed together in a whole-child, developmental learning environment.  

    Children are instructed in the Tools of the Mind curriculum, which is inclusive of a variety of planned activities that promote readiness skills, language, motor and social/emotional growth.  The Flemington-Raritan Preschool Program is held five days a week at Copper Hill Elementary School.  The Preschool follows the District calendar for holidays.   The classes are taught by teachers with the required New Jersey teaching certificate.  Teaching Assistants provide additional instructional support.


    *If your child meets the Kindergarten cut-off date and will be 5 years of age before October 1st, please contact your neighborhood elementary school for Kindergarten registration.*
