Our little ones have learned to make a difference daily in our school and our community.  We acknowledge that there are still challenges to be overcome, as we are a work in progress continuing to run the race.

    It is never too early to learn about how we can make a difference in our community by demonstrating the qualities of a good citizen. Take a look at how Cindy the Crab does it.

  • The Edison Township Preschool Program is dedicated to providing early childhood education for preschool-aged children with disabilities together with their peers in a supportive and safe learning environment which fosters individual growth.

    Our mission is to prepare each child to become increasingly independent, to maximize readiness for more formal school experiences, to encourage each child to become a life-long learner, and to engage the parents and guardians in their child’s educational experience.

    Specifically, the Edison Township Preschool Program strives to:

    • Provide a well-balanced, developmentally appropriate, literacy-based curriculum through High Scope and Rethink.
    • Ensure that there is an environment in which children learn through play.
    • Create and maintain an inclusive learning and play environment for children with and without disabilities.
    • Ensure smooth and effective transitions.
    • Provide and support ongoing educational opportunities and training for staff and parents.
    • Establish and nurture parent partnerships.
    • Establish and nurture collaborative relationships within the Edison community.

  • Ms. Donington Speaks with Parenting Magazine
    EPP in Print

    Recently, Ms. Donington, our Teacher of the Year, had the opportunity to share her thoughts regarding public preschool education. Ms. Kim Hildenbrand of Parenting Magazine asked Ms. Donington to point out the positive impact our type of preschool program can have on our young learners.

    And the Honor Goes to…
     
    Ms. Abigail Donington  
     
    The Edison Preschool Program is happy to announce that Ms. Abigail Donington has been selected as the Teacher of the Year for 2014. Ms. Donington is a teacher in our integrated preschool class @FDR. At any given time, you can see that Ms. Donington has all her students actively engaged in learning, playing, or exploring which are at the core of our High Scope curriculum. Her classroom is warm and welcoming for students, parents, and colleagues alike. Ms. Donington consistently hosts a “mystery reader” in her classroom to engender a love of reading in her students.  Her students’ work is displayed lovingly throughout her class and as you enter our school since she strives to create an environment that is like a home away from home for her students.
