OCEAN CITY — The school district has announced it will start a full-day preschool program after receiving Preschool Education Expansion Aid from New Jersey’s Department of Education.

The district will begin offering full-day, general education preschool at Ocean City Primary School beginning Jan. 2, 2019.

The state funding will allow the district to provide preschool free of charge for in-district families, with spots initially available for 21 children. The program will accommodate children ages 3 and 4 who will begin kindergarten in 2019 or 2020. The application process will give priority to students who demonstrate an economic need and/or are non-native English speakers.

Those who have questions can call Lauren Gunther, curriculum director, at 609-399-3161, ext. 8747.
