We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30am-5:30pm
Our program is designed to provide a high quality learning environment that enables children to develop individually and collectively with other students.
Having received stars from Grow NJ, we strive to meet the needs of our students on a daily basis. Children’s activities stem from the key indicators of the developmentally appropriate HighScope Curriculum. These key indicators include:
- Language and Literacy
- Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Math, Science and Technology
What is the HighScope Educational Approach?
HighScope Students become independent and confident critical thinkers ready for success in their daily activities.
HighScope Students learn through active involvement with people, materials and events.

PQA is the Quality Assessment of the curriculum. It assesses the Childcare Professional’s implementation of the curriculum. The assessment addresses issues such as Adult Child Interactions as well as Health and Safety. The PQA for our Infant and Toddler Program as well as Preschool Program was conducted by an Early Childhood Consultant in January 2023 school year.
The bar graph below displays the classrooms’ assessment scores. Please note that the highest score for this assessment is a 5.
TPOT was also conducted in February 2023. TPOT assesses our adult child interactions.
