The Woodcliff Lake Public School District is currently accepting applications for the Integrated Preschool for September 2020-2021. The Preschool will be conducted for two and one-half hours daily five days a week with both morning and afternoon sessions. The Integrated Preschool program incorporates the education of special education children with that of general education offering a quality early childhood program. Special education children are selected and places in the program through an evaluation process performed by members of the district's Child Study Team. Typical peers will be selected into the program through a lottery. The Woodcliff Lake Public School reserves the right to modify the typical peer program as needed. Letters of request will be accepted until February 2020. Please send letters of request to the Special Services office at 100 Dorchester Road. Woodcliff Lake, NJ 07677, or fax to 201-391-0508.
To be eligible, children must be three years of age on or before October 1, 2020. A birth certificate, copy of immunizations, and proof of residency will be required of those students admitted into the program. Children are expected to be toilet trained since essential skill promotes independence in all children. The Woodcliff Lake Preschool program has a yearly tuition for the enrollment of any typical peer selected into the program. A deposit, representing the first and last month of tuition , is required at the time of registration. The three year old children accepted into this program will be given a preferred opportunity to continue the following year. Kindergarten eligibility requires that children reach the age of five on or before October 1st of the school year.
A lottery will be drawn in February 2020. Please feel free to contact Jessica Ballister at 201-930-5600 Ext.111 with any additional questions.
