A Message to the Parents
Your child is your most treasured possession, an amazing gift that comes with tremendous responsibility. They count on you to fill every need and you pour into their lives all that you have.

Our Philosophy: 4 C’s Learning Skills applied to all students
Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration & Communication
We are ardent believers of the mindset of Dewey that all a school can do and need to do for their students is to develop their ability to think. We don’t give children answers we help them find answers, and that is what separates us from the pack so to speak.
We accomplish this through providing our students with a wide array of materials that are specifically geared to their age and can be explored, manipulated and combined, being utilized in a myriad of ways. We offer integrated approaches to our curriculum with real life contexts, meaningful experiences and opportunities for learning. Opportunities for inquiry and discovery learning are provided in both small groups and through independent learning experiences. There is ample time given in open ended play opportunities in a supportive environment, which is conducive to exploration and discovery.

We Take the Initiative
Grow NJ Kids is a state-sponsored initiative created to raise the quality of childcare and early learning throughout the state of New Jersey. Participation is on a voluntary basis, and Holmdel Preschool is proud to be a part of this worthwhile program. Grow NJ Kids not only provides child care and learning programs that provide and promote assessment and improvement but also provides parents with valuable information. This information enables parents to evaluate the quality of preschools, enabling them to make educated choices that meet the needs of their child.
Grow NJ Kids has established an objective rating system. Trained professionals conduct a preliminary assessment; then work with the care provider to address any areas that could benefit from improvement. Once this process is completed, a trained rater uses a comprehensive, research-based tool to assess the program. A program can earn up to five stars, allowing parents an easy comparison method.
Holmdel Preschool is proud to be a part of Grow NJ Kids.
The New Jersey Hot Shots for Tots Immunization Campaign encourages childcare facilities to help reduce vaccine-preventable diseases among children by promoting best care practices and immunization coverage. Holmdel Preschool is proud to be the recipient of the Gold Award. You can read more about the government’s voluntary program by visiting NJ Dept of Health.
