The Westampton Township Board of Education will be offering full - day preschool inclusion classes for the 2022-2023 school year. To apply for the program, complete this application form and return it no later than May 10, 2022 to the main office at Holly Hills School, located at 500 Ogden Road, Westampton, NJ 08060.
To be eligible for the Preschool Program children must be three years old by October 1, 2022. This is a developmentally oriented program based on noted preschool curricula, as well as New Jersey Core standards for preschool. The class will consist of typically developing children and children with developmental challenges learning together in the same environment.
The program will incorporate activities within the classroom based on the children’s individual learning styles. Our goal is to provide an enriched preschool environment that meets the social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs of all students.
The Preschool Program structure is similar to a typical preschool experience, as the teaching of developmentally appropriate skill areas is embedded throughout the school day. Skills will be developed in the following areas:
Perceptual Motor – Blocks and puzzles
Social and Language Development – Dramatic Play (i.e. –kitchen and dress up)
Language and Emergent Literacy – Writing/Alphabet Center/Library/Listening/Story Center
Sensory Experiences – Sand/Water Table
Creative Representation – Art Center
Mathematic Skills – Manipulative Center
The classroom will be staffed with highly-qualified teachers and instructional assistants.
The integrated preschool design offers children the opportunity to learn and play with age appropriate peers with and without developmental challenges. While teachers focus on individual student goals, the classroom environment will assist in developing a culture of respect and an acceptance of others’ differences.
Typically developing students will be accepted into the program and will be charged tuition. Children ages 3-5 will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis until the classes are full, at which time the children will be placed on a waiting list. Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year will be $5,000 payable in five installments. Tuition is Non-Refundable
Children must be residents of Westampton, three years old by October 1, 2022, toilet trained, have a current physical and all required immunizations.
