DHS Program for Pre-schoolers

Education for Parenthood Preschool Program

Dunellen High School is offering an exciting class that has snacks, storytelling, learning and craft activities as everyday events. The course is Education for Parenthood, where the students are the teachers. It is an accredited course taught third and fourth periods at the high school.

The purpose of the course is to educate students in effective parenting skills. The percentage of unmarried parents, multiplying numbers for abortions, and the growth of child abuse are just a few of the factors that point out the critical need for a stronger emphasis on parenting education. The high school students plan, run, and evaluate the entire program. The year ends with a graduation ceremony.

Dunellen High School is currently taking applications for the 2017-18 Preschool Program. Only Dunellen residents are eligible for the program and it is free of cost. Children should be three years of age by January 1, 2017.

The preschool runs two days a week, Wednesday and Friday (9:25-10:45). The tentative dates for 2017 are October through June 1. Applications are available in the main office of the Dunellen  High School.
