Where will my child be registered?

Posted by:

Students who are enrolled in a current Hackensack 3-year-old class do not need to re-register for a 4-year-old class. 

Students enrolled at Bright Adventures for PK-3 will be automatically enrolled in a PK-4 classroom. Students currently enrolled for PK-3 will be automatically enrolled in a PK-4 year old class. Families will rank their preference for PK-4 placement (district elementary school, Early Childhood Development Center, or a Private Provider class) and the district will place students. Priority will be given to siblings, but first choice placements are not guaranteed as spots are limited.

Parents and Guardians will have the opportunity to request to continue their placement at the provider for Pre-K 4.

Preschool Special Education placements remain in district locations.

PK-4 classes exist at all locations. Spots are limited and provided on a first come, first served basis. Registration opens by phone at 9:00am on March 20, 2024 for 4 year olds and 12:30pm for 3 year olds.  Elementary school spots are filled first and the remaining PK-4 placements are at the Early Childhood Development Center and Private Providers. Families can request placement at a private provider. Priority is given to current Bright Adventures and Bright Seedlings Early Learning Center students in their PK-4 class.

PK-3 classes are available at Bright Adventures Preschool (4 classes) and Bright Seedlings Early Learning Center (1 class) for the 2023-2024 school year.

Sibling accommodations will be considered for families in elementary school classrooms, but cannot always be accommodated.
