Our Mission & Philosophy
To offer all four year olds in Montclair a high quality, affordable education that prepares them for kindergarten and beyond, regardless of the ability of the family to pay tuition.
The Montclair Community Pre-K is a nationally recognized early childhood education program. We are dedicated to educational excellence and are a model school in the local community, as well as in New Jersey and across the country.
To ensure we fulfill our mission, we offer tuition assistance on a sliding-scale based on household income. We are proud to say that no Montclair resident has ever been denied admission because of lack of funds.
We recognize the importance of high quality early childhood education and its links to later academic and social success.
