PRIDE (Preschool 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 expectations of our well-designed curriculum based on the pre-school 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 – 8:05 a.m. to 10:35 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 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 2019-2020 school year, the half-day classes are for children who turn 3 or 4 before October 1, 2019. 

    Please contact Ms. Jessica Byrne from the Department of Student Services, or 973-535-8000, x8008, regarding availability for the 2019-2020 school year and all other application procedures.

    Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be available in late December 2019.
