Suburban Hills School, located on Oakdale Road in Chester, New Jersey, understands that parents want more for their children than just daycare in the early childhood years. They want a safe and happy place, a home away from home, where their children will be nurtured, where their potential will be cultivated and developed, and where they will be properly prepared for elementary school.
With this in mind, the Suburban Hills School facilities were custom-designed with attention to early childhood exclusively, reinforcing our goal to provide a “Total Environment” where children are comfortable and stimulated to learn and discover. Our focus is on developing each child’s full potential on an intellectual, physical, emotional, and social level.
We consider our educational team of early childhood specialists our most valuable resource. All of our teachers are both CPR and First-Aid Certified, offering a safe and nurturing environment for the children. Their primary concern is always your child’s needs, down to the arrangement of classrooms and the learning tools, toys, and educational equipment available in each classroom.
Children are guided and encouraged to progress at their own pace of development through both structured and free-play activities. Teachers are constantly observing each child’s current skills to establish their readiness for new skills. Parents are kept up-to-date with complete progress reports for each child, assessing academic, physical, and social skills.
With a thorough grasp of the importance of Pre-School as a foundation for future education, we offer a place where children not only feel safe and happy, but we cultivate a healthy curiosity in our kids that inspires creativity and a love of learning. At Suburban Hills, we are very proud to know that children who have graduated from our school are exceptionally prepared for elementary school.
Children are equipped with the tools they will need for elementary school in a loving and safe environment where they are encouraged to learn and develop to their full potential under the nurturing guidance of early-learning specialists.
The curriculum at Suburban Hills is carefully designed to meet appropriate goals for each age group. In addition, our teachers are early-education specialists who place a very strong emphasis on allowing each child to develop at their own pace. Teachers keep comprehensive progress reports on each child’s development on academic, physical, and social levels, including:
Large and Small Muscle Development
Philosophy & Mission
Suburban Hills School is not merely childcare. We blend a strong, structured, academic program with interesting activities and free play to hone in on each child’s potential to become well-rounded individuals on every level. We stress the importance of building a positive self-image by making each child feel loved, special, and unique. We constantly evaluate each child’s skill level to ensure they are appropriately challenged to their abilities and potential.
