Dear Parents and Educators of Washington Township,


It has come to our attention that the Board of Education is trying to spread our Kindergarten classes among the various elementary schools and the fate of our preschool is left undertermined. This comes with total disregard to the research which supports early childhood centers for the long term academic success of our students.

If you support the Early Childhood Model of keeping our children ages 3-6 under one roof please sign this petition. It is not about keeping a building open, it is about building a foundation for our young learners that is both developmentally and physically appropriate for them to thrive.

"It is absolutely reasonable to expect that kindergarten is about playful learning and learningful play, and about academic socialization and social academics" (Gullo 2006).
