21-22 VIRTUAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN OPEN HOUSE
AND REGISTRATION

The Deane-Porter School in Rumson will be having a Virtual Open House and Registration for Pre-Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year, via a virtual link that will be available on our website, beginning January 27, 2021.

The Preschool program is designed to run five days per week during the school year.  Students must be three years of age by October 1, 2021.  Three and four year olds are integrated.  If necessary, a lottery will be held.  Participation in the program requires a tuition fee of $3,500.00.

We invite interested parents and their children to view our Preschool Open House link.  As of January 27, 2021, you will be able to view the link as well as download a registration packet, by visiting our website at www.rumsonschool.org.

To ensure participation in the lottery, your registration MUST be completed and turned into the office by February 8, 2021.  Anyone registering after that date will be put on a waiting list. Past participation in the program guarantees a spot for the 2021-2022 school year, but to ensure a spot, the child’s updated registration packet must be received by February 8, 2021.

If you have any questions, please call Laura Randazzo at 732 842-0811.
