Learn more about Pomona Preschool.

Mission

The Pomona Preschool, which is part of the Galloway Township Public School District, is a full-day program for students three to five years of age. Based on the Creative Curriculum, our students are exposed to developmentally appropriate practices in the following areas: language and literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, technology, and social-emotional and process skills.While some persons outside the preschool setting still see programs as being about play, we embrace the concept since play is a large part of pre-academic and social-emotional skills for learning. Our staff also uses Teaching Strategies as part of assessing how students are doing. This platform allows for both formative and summative assessments.The building houses just over 120 students with five inclusive classes and six preschool disabled classrooms. Each classroom has at least two adults in it with the preschool disabled classes having three adults in them. What is nice about working

Academics

The program uses Creative Curriculum - Volume 6 for 10 of the classrooms. The Autism classroom uses the STAR curriculum. In addition, the building uses Positive Behavior Support from Vanderbuilt University that serves as the foundation for social-emotional learning and resiliency.

Programs

The building provides before and after childcare for our families.

Teachers

Along with the district's professional development planning, our staff is actively engaged in learning more on how to help our students in the classroom, in working with families, and coordinating the positive relationship between general and special education students, staff, and families. We are fortunate to have a part-time Master Teacher (grant funded) who provides in-class coaching as well as individualized and group training.

Supports

The building has a Child Study Team that consists of two case managers, one and one-half speech therapist, a part-time occupational therapist, and a part-time physical therapist. The building's PIRT team works with students, teachers, classroom assistants, and families.

Health

We are fortunate to have a full time nurse on staff that works with children, staff, and families. In addition, her background is in pediatric medicine. Our children receive breakfast and lunch on a daily basis and eat in their classrooms to support social development. Our school also has a garden that is tended by staff and students with the support of a Master Gardner. Children have opportunities every day for indoor and outdoor play, depending upon the weather.

Parents

Our school has a Family School Association with both parent/guardian and staff members. Fundraisers provide resources for students and staff. Additionally, parents/guardians attend and help support special activities for the students. At varying times throughout the year, educational programs for parents/guardians are provided by our staff and / or outside consultants.

Facilities

The Pomona Preschool includes the main school in addition to two modular classrooms leased using Preschool Expansion grant fundings. The entire school and modulars are air conditioned. Various maintenance projects and facility improvements are made each year - this includes the building itself and the grounds. Enhancing our playground area is one example of a recent priority.

More

The Pomona Preschool teachers, support staff, and administration work as a team to provide a safe, nurturing environment for our students. Since this is the first formal schooling for most of our children, great effort is taken to help transition students to school and to develop literacy and other foundational skills. We seek to address the whole child and help every student progress in social-emotional, behavioral, and academic skills. As much as possible, learning is exploratory in nature with student choice and active engagement. For our special needs students, we focus on building from their strengths and enhancing areas of need. Ongoing communication with parents/guardians and support for families are important aspects of our work. School safety - including emergency planning and drill practice - is a priority.
