Our New Jersey state certified early child care and preschool education for children 2-5 years old is provided in a unique home-based school setting, in a small group of no more than five or six children at a time, and under the guidance of always the same, highly qualified educators.
Early Arts Preschool is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm, with summer break July and August.
Depending on our availability and your needs, the children are enrolled for 2, 3, or 5 days per week.
Our ratio of children to adult is 5:1 - 5:2, or rarely, 6:2. Our regular group is five kids at a time. If it's six, it's only when two teachers are present. The same two teachers are working with the kids throughout the whole school year, in addition to our dance teacher that jumps in as a teacher's assistant if needed.
We use photo and video documentation to reflect and revisit experiences, feelings, ideas, and the learning process.
This we share with the children and their families on a semiregular basis.
Enriched dance lessons and creative movement classes are scheduled bi-weekly by DDA Dance Academy in Paramus, NJ.
These fun 45-minute classes consist of a combination of dance, coordination skills, and rhythm. Skills that are introduced in the creative movement class are reinforced, and new skills are added to keep students engaged while playfully learning.

Tuition (c. $6-7 per hour) varies based on the weekly attendance schedule you choose for your child. Some flexibility with the schedule may be possible but must be discussed in advance. Tuition can be paid weekly or monthly, by cash, check, or mobile payment. Except during the summer months of July and August, tuition is expected on a regular basis, on our working and non-working days, and if child is absent for whatever reason. Tuition statement is provided at the end of the year for tax purposes.
The size of our group is always 5 to 6 kids at a time and it is not getting bigger as the kids are getting older, so tuition is the same for all ages; your 4 or 5 years old will enjoy the same benefits of the small group and individual attention from their teachers as their younger siblings or friends.
20 creative movement classes are scheduled throughout the school year. Dance fee is included in Tuition.
In addition, three nutritious, healthy meals are freshly prepared daily and included in tuition price if the food program form is signed.
Enrollment is ongoing during the school year, depending on the space availability. Re-enrolling in spring for the next school year; after continuous enrollment is confirmed, priority is given to the siblings of the currently enrolled students and returning families. Available schedule is then offered to the parents on our waitlist.
