The Gloucester Twp. Recreation Dept. Preschool Program has been operating for over 25 years! Our goal is to provide Gloucester Township and the surrounding communities with an affordable, professionally-run program to help preschoolers with socialization skills, beginning their independence and helping them prepare for their grade school years. We have one of the highest teacher retention in the state! Our open door policy allows you to come and observe your child anytime! Come and check us out!
Our State licensed program is for children, who have turned 3 by September 30, 2019 through 5-year olds who have not yet entered kindergarten. Students enrolling in Preschool will be grouped according to the year they will enter Kindergarten. Children must be potty trained. Our program is held at your choice of locations: Recreation Center or Point Ariel Park.
Due to the current surge in COVID-19 cases, the Township has made the decision to cancel the Winter Session of the Recreation Department’s Preschool Program in the best interest of the students, teachers, and our residents.
Restrictions severely limit the number of children we are able to serve at both Point Ariel Park and the Rec Center, and current requirements would not allow our preschool program to run without risk to the safety of the children. As a result, we have made the decision not to offer the preschool program in January. While this decision is not an easy one and not one made lightly, we are hopeful that in the near future we will be able to bring back the education that our residents have come to expect from our program over the past 30 years.
We wish you a healthy and safe winter, and hope to see you in Spring 2021!
As a result, we have made a decision not to offer the preschool program in the fall. While this decision has not been an easy one and not one made lightly, we are hopeful that in the coming months, restrictions will be relaxed and we can resume our preschool programming for the winter session.
