Pre-School Information


The Deane-Porter School in Rumson will be having an Open House and Registration for Pre-Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year, on January 25, 2024, from 9:15 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.

The Preschool program is designed to run five days per week during the school year.  We offer both AM & PM sessions, however session times cannot be requested.  Students must be three years of age by October 1, 2024.  Three and four year olds are integrated.  Participation in the program requires a tuition fee of $5,000.00.  

We invite interested parents and their children to attend our Preschool Open House, however attendance is not mandatory in order to register!  Online registration will be open as of January 2, 2024.  Please visit the school website to register your child for Preschool by following the instructions on our homepage or click here -

To ensure participation in the lottery, your registration MUST be completed and turned into the office by February 9, 2024.  Anyone registering after that date will be put on a waiting list.  After the February  9th deadline, you will be contacted with an acceptance offer requiring a $500- deposit, or notified of a lottery if necessary.   

Past participation in the program guarantees a spot for the 2024-2025 school year & you DO NOT need to re-register .
