• Greetings,

    The Cherry Hill School District is expanding its preschool program during the 2024-2025 school year for Cherry Hill
    residents as a direct result of receiving Preschool Expansion Aid (PEA) from the New Jersey Department of Education
    (NJDOE) on October 18, 2023. Our program is a mixed delivery program in which preschool classrooms are held both in
    the district and at surrounding private providers with whom we have partnered.

    We offer a FREE, full day program, Monday through Friday, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm. Children must be three (3) or four (4) on
    or before October 1, 2024. Transportation is provided for eligible students based on district policy. If your child is not
    eligible for transportation, you will be responsible for transportation to and from school.

    It is imperative that your child arrives and departs on time daily. Late arrivals and early departures are disruptive to the
    class routines and interfere with the education of all of the children. We CANNOT have early or late pick up arrangements
    unless you are participating in before or aftercare.

    If you are interested in enrolling your typically developing child, you must fully register your child during our
    24-25 Preschool Enrollment window (Monday, March 4, 2024 - Friday, March 15, 2024). To begin the registration
    process, please go onto our Cherry Hill Public School District website to Pre-Register. Go to www.chclc.org, select
    Departments, then Registration. Registration cannot be completed without all required documentation being

    Once all required documents are uploaded, your child will be assigned a student ID by the Registration
    Department. The following day, 3 required forms will be available in your Genesis Parent Access account. All
    forms must be completed and submitted by the deadline (March 15, 2024) in order for your child to be eligible for

    It is imperative that all children are fully registered to ensure adequate transportation, secure student placements,
    and plan necessary events to start the school year, such as our “Sneak-n-Peek” for families and students to have the
    opportunity to meet their child’s teacher and visit their classroom before the start of the school year.

    Any children not FULLY registered by March 15, 2024 will not be placed on the waitlist or considered for a seat
    for the 24-25 school year. Families may request a registration appointment and/or direct registration questions to
    eguerriero@chclc.org or 856-429-7283 ext. 4040 to ensure the timeline is met.

    After completing registration, families will be notified via email or US mail of their child’s placement (waitlist or at a
    CHPS Preschool location) during the week of April 22, 2024. Please do NOT call Malberg ECC to inquire about status.
    Those offered placement at a CHPS Preschool location will have one week to accept the placement before a seat is offered
    to a child on our waitlist. Failure to accept the placement within the one week period will constitute a declination of

    2. Children MUST be residents of Cherry Hill.
    3. Transportation will be provided for eligible students based on district policy.
    4. Children must be at least 3 or 4 years old as of October 1, 2024.
