Please be advised, if your child is age 5 before October 1, 2020, and you reside in Roxbury, you have to register them for Kindergarten.

The Roxbury Community School Preschool program is a tuition-based program open to children ages 3-5 (as of October 1st). The preschool program is housed within a district elementary school in Roxbury Township. Our program incorporates activities within the classroom based on the children's individual learning styles. Our goal is to provide an enriched preschool environment that meets the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive needs of all students.
Our integrated preschool design offers children the opportunity to learn and play with age-appropriate peers. While teachers focus on individual student goals, the classroom environment will assist in developing a culture of respect and acceptance of others' differences.
