Saturday Preschool Program

Beginning in October, there will be a Saturday Pre-K Program for children entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2017. The program will be held at Grandview School in North Caldwell from 10:00am to 11:15am one Saturday each month from October 2016 to April 2017. The goal of the Saturday Preschool Program is to familiarize your child with their new school and classmates prior to the first day of Kindergarten.

This program is open to all North Caldwell children who will be four years old by October 1, 2016. It will feature special visitors, tours of the school, story time, crafts and snack time.
