    Thank you for your interest in our Pre-School program! As you know, this year we held two open houses about expanding our Pre-School program in order to offer 40 preschool seats.

    Unfortunately, during these two open house meetings, a miscommunication in regards to the date to call for registration occurred and two different dates to begin calling for registration appointments were given. This resulted in an unequal opportunity for registration.  Therefore, we feel it is best to offer a lottery approach to the open preschool seats.

    Additionally, due to the positive interest in the preschool program, we are pleased to announce the district will be adding an additional 15 seats for the upcoming 2017 - 2018 school year.


    • If you called the district on March 3 and had your name and number taken down, you will be automatically entered into the lottery.
    • If you have not called the district yet to register, you must call before 4 p.m. on March 7th.


    The lottery will be held on March 8th.  At this time names will be pulled to fill the total of 55 available preschool seats. You will be contacted by March 10th if your name was selected for an open seat.  At that time, you will be scheduled for an appointment to register at the adminstration building.

    Thank you for your understanding and interest in the preschool program.

    Although this program is not required by the state department of education, the Jackson School District has been working to expand our opportunities for preschool age students and we are excited to offer an engaging program to our youngest students.

    Please contact Supervisor Tracy Decker 732-833-4657 or Assistant Superintendent of Schools Nicole Pormilli at 732-833-4604 with any questions.  

What is the Jackson School District Pre-School Program?

  • We offer:

    • A FULL-Day, 5 day a week program, 
    • or a HALF-Day, 5 day a week program

    The Early Learning Integrated Pre-School is a tuition-based program that provides parents of 3- and 4 year-olds the opportunity to register for a developmentally appropriate early learning experience within the school district.

    The curriculum design and implementation will be based on the New Jersey Department of Education’s Pre-School Teaching and Learning Standards and the Pre-School Implementation Guidelines.

    Special needs and typically developing pre-schoolers will come together in an inclusive classroom where language, academic and social skills will be developed in a nurturing environment.

    Enrollment is open to typical Jackson Resident pre-school students at a low tuition cost. Enrollment is based on the order of completed registration.

    Please register early to ensure a spot in the program.
