Preschool Integrated Program Information for 2014-2015

Millburn Township Public Schools is pleased to announce the annual opening of applications for its Integrated Preschool Program. The Millburn Integrated Preschool program has been a valuable service to the community since September 1993. The Millburn Township Public Schools’ Preschool Integrated Programs are located at the South Mountain Elementary School,
2 Southern Slope Drive, Millburn and the Deerfield Elementary School, 26 Troy Lane, Short Hills. These unique programs are comprised of children with special needs as well as typically developing preschool children from the township. A general Preschool Curriculum is followed for all students. The District charges a nominal monthly fee of $300 for the comprehensive services that are provided for all regular education students attending the Integrated Preschool Program. This fee is substantially lower than area private preschool programs and in concert with the tuition rates charged by surrounding districts.

All preschool sessions are two and one-half hour classes, Monday through Friday. The three-year-old program runs in the morning from 8:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The program for four-year-olds is in the afternoon from 12:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Regular education students must submit an application to be eligible for the Lottery. Applicants must be three-years of age on or before October 1, 2014, and fully toilet-trained as of the start of school in September. There are 24 openings each year at the three-year-old level. Applications for four year old students will be accepted solely for placement on a wait list. The four year old program is automatically populated with returning students from the previous three year old class. If an opening becomes available due to a student leaving the program, the wait list is utilized.

Applications will be available at the Millburn Education Center, 434 Millburn Avenue, Millburn, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., from January 9 to February 14, 2014, or on the Millburn School District’s website at The deadline for applications is Friday, February 14, 2014. If you access the application online, please fax the completed form to 973-912-8450. The lottery drawing will be held Monday, February 24, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at the Education Center’s Board Room. It is not necessary to attend the lottery drawing to be admitted. Lottery winners will be notified by mail. All three-year-old applicants not selected through the Lottery will be placed on a wait list.

If selected to participate in the program through the lottery, proof of residency in the township and an original birth certificate must be provided in order to be admitted. Students admitted to the Preschool Program must still register for kindergarten at their home school when the student is five-years-old.

To obtain more detailed information about this great program, please come to a “Preschool Information Meeting” on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, at 7p.m. in the Preschool Section of South Mountain School.
