The Carlstadt Public School Preschool Program


Children learn as they play; most importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.

Fred Donaldson

We at the Carlstadt Public School are so excited to offer the children of the town our full day Preschool Program.  The district started this program January 2, 2024.  The preschool team is very excited to start implementing the Creative Curriculum and foster learning through play with our youngest learners.  Learning thrives on home and school connections.  We want to support the whole child and  their family with our new community liaison, Lisa DelMauro.  

Please reach out to our team with any questions @
