Pre-Kindergarten for 3 and 4 year olds is not mandated by the State of New Jersey. However, the State recommends that districts that do offer a program give first consideration to the following populations for enrollment:
- Teaneck resident (proof of residency is required at the time of enrollment);
- Child must be 3 or 4 years old on or before October 1, 2017;
- Classified students and their siblings (classified or unclassified);
- Economically disadvantaged students; and
- Students of active military families.
Please be aware, there are a limited number of spaces in our Pre-K program. After these categories have been filled, your child's name will be placed in a lottery for random selection, if space is available. The Pre-K program is a half day program; AM session is from 8:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and the PM session is from 11:50 a.m. - 2:20 p.m. (See website for extended day, fee-based WRAP/SACC programs)
Make sure all of the following steps are completed:
STEP 1: Applications must be picked up or may be downloaded from Bryant School AND must be submitted no later than May 5, 2017. *Submitting an application does not guarantee your child a place in the Pre-K program.*
STEP 2: You will be notified whether or not your child is accepted by June 2, 2017 and if so, you will need to attend a scheduled screening to secure your spot (screening information will be included in the acceptance letter).
