Preschool Programs

Preschool Programs 

The overall goal of Essex County Public School’s Preschool Programs is to provide students the opportunity to learn by helping them discover answers through hands-on learning activities that stimulate their curiosity and creativity. The Preschool Program curriculum strives to increase language development, motor and thinking skills and social interactions through cooperative learning activities. The curriculum also focuses on social, emotional and physical development. Essex County Public Schools offers two types of Early Childhood Education Programs.


Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)
