• A child must be 4 years of age on or before October 1 for Pre-K4 (No exceptions). Children must reside in Bayonne, New Jersey.  Access the Registration page to gain additional insight on Pre-K4 registration, documents needed, and steps on how to register your child.


    If your child is currently enrolled in the District's Pre-K3 program, you do not need to re-register for Pre-K4. This is ONLY for students NEW to the District.


    In addition to the Bayonne School District’s Pre K4 classrooms, we partner with a local preschool, Kiddie Corner 2, to assist us in our Pre K4 program. Click on the below link to learn more about Kiddie Corner 2:

    | Important to note:

    All Bayonne School District Pre-K offerings are expressly dependent upon and subject to the availability of NJ Department of Education (NJDOE) funds to the Bayonne School District. Offerings are subject to change based on NJDOE funding.

    By enrolling your child in preschool, they benefit from the key elements of early learning, the importance of socializing with others, and adherence to a regular school schedule. The attendance policy states if a child is absent for more than 10-consecutive school days (except in the event of documented medical illness), the child will be removed from the Pre-K program’s enrollment. |

  • We believe that every child is entitled to a high-quality, developmentally appropriate school experience that includes many active learning opportunities. Take a look at our Getting Ready for Pre K4 presentation.

    And, view with your child our Welcome to Pre-K4 video to assist in transitioning from K3 to K4.
