Ready, Set, Go! Preschoolers Program (ages 3-5)

“I couldn't be happier with my son’s experience at Ready, Set, Go. He is learning and creating in a loving, nurturing environment. He looks forward to going to school every day - what more can a mom ask for? Rutgers is so lucky to have such dynamic and dedicated teachers. Keep up the great work!!!” –Karen, mom to a 4-year-old

Space is available for the 2015-2016 school year for children between the ages of 3 and 4 ½ years as of September 1.

About Ready, Set, Go!

Our program is dedicated to nurturing children’s innate curiosity and joy in learning. We offer a balanced, whole-child approach in which preschoolers learn through play.

  • Our curriculum units are theme-based, meaning we focus on a single theme from a few weeks to several months, depending on the engagement of the children and the directions in which they lead us. This allows them to explore a topic in depth through multiple lenses, including dramatic play, storytelling, science, block building, sensory play, art, and more.
  • The framework for each day includes free play, morning meeting, snack, story and a good-bye meeting. The interdisciplinary nature of our program means that other experiences, such as science, music, story acting, and gross motor play are interwoven throughout the week. This allows experiences to occur organically based on where the children are. In addition the children visit the Art Studio twice a week.
  • We take a maximum of 12 children in each class, with at least three instructors present. One parent describes our program this way:  “I always know my child is safe, respected, and emotionally cared for at this darling school with a small-town feel in this enormous city.”
  • Ready, Set, Go offers morning and afternoon sessions, Monday through Thursday
