RUMSON PRESCHOOL WELCOMES NEW DOGS

Krisanne Zajac joins the Rumson Bulldog to welcome the preschool class of 2017.

Press release from Rumson Public School District

The Rumson Public School District is pleased to announce year eight of the implementation of its integrated preschool program. The primary goal of the program is to provide developmentally appropriate educational experiences that build a strong foundation for future academic success. All children in this program are encouraged to grow socially, cognitively, emotionally and physically and to have fun doing so.

The program was established with two goals: improve early childhood education practices, and develop the highest quality preschool program. To accomplish these goals, Rumson has partnered with the New Jersey Departments of Children and Families, Education, Health, and Human Services in an effort to enhance their preschool program and offerings.

On February 1, Deane-Porter Elementary held its first preschool open house. This year, Rumson rolled out a simplified lottery process aimed at putting all parents on equal footing. All applicants were invited to attend a live lottery on March 9, and were selected during a random drawing. Rumson was happy to welcome 17 new students and families into the program, doubling their enrollment from the year prior.

“This year’s open house and lottery was created, in part, to better serve parents and students within the Rumson community,” said Michael Snyder, Supervisor of Special Services. “The district has worked hard to implement a program that supports the development of our children’s language, literacy, and behavioral skills, as well as their awareness of the world around them.”

The newest additions to the Bulldog family will begin in September 2017. The program serves three and four year old children. To learn more about the district preschool program and/or the process, please visit www.rumsonschool.org.
