WOHS Career Education Preschool

  • Our  WOHS Career Education  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 Family Studies courses. As part of the curriculum, 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 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.
    For the 2023-2024 school year, we are offering our full-day program which meets on Tuesday and Thursdays from 7:35AM-2:00PM from October-December and then again from mid February-May dependent upon the high school schedule. Spots are limited. If you are interested in being placed on our wait list, please complete the application. Please note, once a spot becomes available, your child's pediatrician must complete the required medical forms prior to your child beginning the program.
    If your child has special needs, please contact the Director of Special Services, Connie Salimbeno, to find out more about the preschool program at the Betty Maddalena Early Learning Center. Supervisor of Early Childhood, Kalisha Dorlean, can provide information about the preschool opportunities available to children ages 3-4 as part of the Preschool Expansion Grant.

    For the 23-24 school year, send  applications for the WOHS Career Education Preschool Program to Nancy Mullin at West Orange High School. Families will be notified if a spot becomes available.
