Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

 It is with great excitement that we announce our recent National School of Character designation! This recent achievement is the result of the combined energy and passion of our staff, students, and parents here at the Pemberton Early Childhood Education Center, where collaboratively we all contribute to the success of being an excellent exemplar of early childhood education! Together, we implement our core values: RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, INTEGRITY, PERSEVERANCE, and SERVICE. We intentionally connect academic and social skills while encouraging "VOICE and CHOICE" while providing a solid foundation for education and life. 

 We are also proud of our Grow NJ Kids, New Jersey's Quality Rating Improvement System, 5 star status, which is designed to raise the quality of early learning throughout the state. Based on findings, the state assigns a program 1 to 5 stars. The Pemberton Early Childhood Education Center is proud to have earned the top 5 star rating!

We offer every 3 and 4 year old child in Pemberton Township a 5 star rated full day program at no cost to Pemberton families. The program provides our children a full day of fun, an opportunity to learn through active exploration, and pre-academic activities by addressing the needs of the whole child.

All of our 38 classes are led by certified early childhood teachers and all of our special education classes are led by certified special education teachers. Our children thrive in our accepting, loving environment where they will receive individualized attention and supports.

Research shows that children who participate in an early childhood education program build a life-long love of learning. We have a full literacy and math curriculum and take great pride in the word EDUCATION.

Our preschool high quality program follows the school calendar year, including the same holidays and breaks as our entire school district.

We are a full day program from 9:10-3:40, offer transportation for our 4 year olds, and also provide before and after care if necessary.

Again, I welcome everyone to our amazing educational facility and look forward to meeting our new pandas while welcoming back our returning families!

With Panda Pride and Spirit,
