• Applications are now being accepted for the Montgomery Township School District Cubs Club Preschool Program for children ages 3-5.  The program runs five days half-days per week at Orchard Hill Elementary School.   Students will have the opportunity to grow and develop with peers in the areas of social skills, play skills, language skills, motor skills and early academic skills.  Children must turn three years old on or before October 1, 2019 to enter the three year old class and four years old on or before October 1, 2019 to enter the four year old class.  Class sizes will be limited to 17 students per class.

    The preschool program will consist of the morning class (for 3-year-olds) and the afternoon class (for 4-year-olds).  The morning class runs from 9:20-12:00 and the afternoon class runs from 1:10-3:45.  The instructional staff in the classroom will include one certified teacher and at least one instructional aide.  The number of classes offered is dependent on student needs and is yet to be determined.

    Students currently placed in the three year old class are offered priority placement in the four year old class for the 2019-2020 school year.  Siblings of children who are or have been students in the Cubs Club program are also offered priority placement in the program. To be considered for priority placement, applications must be received before March 15, 2019. 

    Applications will be accepted beginning February 4, 2019 through March 15.  Students eligible for priority placement will be offered placement first.  With the spots remaining, a lottery drawing will be held to determine student acceptance into the program. Families will be informed whether or not their child is offered a spot in the program by March 20. Applications received after March 15 will be offered placement into the program on a first-come, first-served basis if openings in the classes remain.  All other applicants will be placed on a waiting list. 

    Additional information is available by contacting Jennifer Petruso in the Office of Special Services at Orchard Hill Elementary School at 609-466-7605 ext. 1062.
