    3 and 4 Year Old Applicants

    Cranford Public Schools offers an inclusive half day preschool Program called READY. The READY program is a regular education preschool program that places children with special needs with their typical peers. The Philosophy is based on the rationale that children learn through modeling and imitation and are motivated by other children. By integrating students with disabilities into typical preschool classes, maximum growth and development is achieved for all children.

    We have openings available for the P.M. session of READY. The hours of the program are 12:30pm – 3pm. Cranford does NOT provide transportation to students in this program.

    Children who will be 3 years old or 4 years old by October 1, 2017 and are Cranford residents are eligible for READY. Applications must be hand delivered to the Board of Education Office, 132 Thomas Street. The application is included here.

    The tuition charge for this program is $390.00 per month. First and last months' tuition is due upon acceptance into the program and is non refundable.

    For additional information or if you have any questions, you may call The Office of Special Services at (908)709-6217.

  • How to be a How-To Writer students sharing

    Kindergartners visited the First Grade classrooms to learn a thing or two about how to be a how-to writer! First Graders shared their drafts or published pieces and explained what a good how-to writer does to teach someone else the steps for doing something. Kindergartners looked at checklists and asked questions. They even taught the First Graders a bit about writing too!
