    2022-2023 PRIDE Pre-School Tuition Based Program

    The Livingston Public Schools have limited space for general education pre-school students ages 3-5 in one of our most impactful programs, PRIDE-Pre-school Readiness Individual Developmental Education. Students will be provided with a language rich, research-based curriculum. They will spend their days with NJ certified teachers and with their disabled and non-disabled peers to achieve the expectation of our well-designed curriculum based on the preschool standards in NJ. Friends gather daily to develop social language, work as partners and in groups, and explore, play, create, share and learn!   

    PRIDE is located in the Burnet Hill Elementary School and offers two sessions - 8:20 to 10:55 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. Our program runs five days per week on the school calendar for either the morning or afternoon session. Students will be assigned to a section based upon age, skill and preference. For the 2022-2023 school year, the half day classes are for children who turn 3 or 4 before October 1, 2022.

    Currently, the cost for students selected by lottery is $3,000 a year.  A birth certificate, copy of immunization and proof of Livingston residency will be required of those students admitted to the program.
