Preschool at West Orange High School
Our preschool program is part of our state approved Career and Technical Education Early Childhood program. High School students are enrolled in one of three of our Early Childhood and Families Studies courses. As part of the curricula, students learn about the developmental stages of children from birth to age six. They are taught how to plan, develop and implement lessons which they deliver to the preschool children across all disciplines. During lab days when preschool is in session, high school students deliver their lessons to the preschool children under the supervision of our certified high school staff. You can read more about the program in the brochure below.If your child has special needs, please contact the Director of Special Services, Kristen Gogerty, to find out more about the preschool program at the Betty Maddalena Early Learning Center.
