Best of the best
At Park Side Preschool we emphasize learning through play. We help children develop the desire and confidence to progress and 
learn at their own pace. It is our goal to provide a safe, supportive, relaxed, and enjoyable atmosphere for our students. Our program is interactive, developmentally appropriate, and culturally diverse. It cultivates the child's social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development through a well-planned curriculum and activities that encourage self-discovery. 
It is important to us that children  understand that learning is fun and school is a joyful place! We offer a” Whole Environment” which encourages children to become lifelong learners  and prepares them well to move on to kindergarten.
Park Side is a part time preschool. We accept children who are potty trained and will be at least 2 years and 9 months old at the time they start attending. The maximum age is 5.11 years. Park Side Preschool is a ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Newark (FPCN)
