Ready Preschool Program

Cranford Public Schools offers an inclusive preschool Program called READY.

The READY program is a regular education preschool program that places children with special needs with their typical peers. The Philosophy is based on the rationale that children learn through modeling and imitation and are motivated by other children. By integrating students with disabilities into typical preschool classes, maximum growth and development is achieved for all children.

National Fire Prevention Month- NJ Fire Safety

As National Fire Prevention Month comes to a close, the Cranford Public Schools would like to support and encourage further fire prevention and fire safety conversations with our 6th grade students and their families. In partnership with the Cranford Fire Department, we are integrating the “Fire is” video series into our sixth grade science classes. We request that all 6th grade students view the series of “Fire is” videos, a realistic and informative program developed by Dr. Frank Field, at home with their parents. Each video runs approximately 20 minutes. One video will be assigned each month as follows:

  • · “Fire is Black” in November
  • · “Fire is Hot” in December
  • · “Fire is Fast” in January
  • · “Fire is Smoke and Gas” in February
  • · “Fire is an Emergency” in March

In addition to viewing the videos, the 6th grade science teachers will facilitate short lessons, activities and discussions to reinforce important facts and concepts. Each student will be asked to complete a pre/post test survey. The FMBA will use the results of the assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
