Hillsborough Township Public Schools is currently accepting lottery applications for the 2013-14 Integrated Preschool Program.
The district’s Integrated Preschool is a five days a week program (with every other Monday off). It is open to residents of Hillsborough who turn 3 or 4 by Oct. 1, 2013. The 3-year-old class runs from 8:30 a.m. — 11:17 a.m., and the 4-year-old class is held from 12:17 p.m. —3:05 p.m.
The program provides a safe and nurturing experience in which both special needs and typically developing children can play and learn together in an integrated learning environment that utilizes a developmental approach. Each class will serve eight typically developing students and up to seven students with special needs. Both classes are taught by a dual certified teacher in special education and P-3 general education. Two teaching assistants in each class provide the teacher and students with additional instructional support.
The cost for the program (for non-classified students) is $275/month. District transportation services are also available for an additional $25/month. Lottery applications and additional information regarding the Integrated Preschool Program are available on the district website, www.htps.us and at the Board of Education office (379 S. Branch Road). Completed lottery applications are due to Woods Road School by 3pm on Friday, March 1. The lottery for preschool spots will be held on Friday, March 8. Program participants will be notified of lottery selection immediately via email.
Any questions regarding the Integrated Preschool Program should be directed to Mary Beth Loughlin at (908) 431-6600 x2121.
