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.
