***Where the stars of tomorrow shine brightly today***
Mountain Way School is an early childhood learning community serving the needs of Morris Plains’ children in preschool through second grade. Our school philosophy embraces each child entering school and recognizes his or her unique needs, abilities, aptitudes, and interests. A creative, caring, and competent professional staff encourages every child to learn, grow, and flourish within a challenging yet supportive environment. Children develop positive self-esteem coupled with a love for learning, acquisition of knowledge, and problem solving skills.
Once again, Morris Plains is pleased to offer in-district tuitioned preschool classes for Morris Plains residents who are three or four years old. This exciting preschool program uses a multi-sensory approach to teach three and four year old students and prepare them for Kindergarten at Mountain Way. Students benefit from a language based program, which allows for learning and discovery through play. The nurturing classroom atmosphere both excites and encourages our young students. The program offers access to cutting edge technology, including iPads, interactive whiteboards and a Redcat sound system. Of course, traditional preschool activities such as songs, movement, and gross motor activities are used to grab the attention of our young learners. Students also develop their problem solving skills through our daily math and science activities. Finally, students participate in gym, library, art, and music classes weekly.
Our inclusive preschool program includes both children with specific learning needs and typically developing children who have no identified needs. Inclusive education seeks to provide meaningful education to the range of students in our communities by drawing strength from their diversity.
Registration begins January 15th. For registration information, fees, and forms, please contact Cristie Bruhn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-538-0339 x 1. If we have more applicants than space allows, a lottery will be conducted to determine acceptance. If space allows, out of district residents may be eligible for a slightly increased fee.

TOYS FOR TOTS - December 2 - 16
We all have so much to be thankful for.
Hopefully, this holiday season you will keep in mind those who are less fortunate than we.
Unfortunately, the need is still great, and we have many families here in Morris County who are struggling to make ends meet.
To help brighten the holidays for some of those children, we will be collecting Toys for Tots again this year.
Collection boxes will be located at both schools. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
