Preschool Penguins Program


The Collingswood Public School District is pleased to offer full-day Preschool programs FREE OF CHARGE. Preschool seats are offered by lottery.

Roundup for the Preschool Lottery begins on February 1 for the following school year. The lottery closes on the final school day of February. Families will be notified of lottery selection by mid-March or as soon as the New Jersey Department of Education confirms funding for the subsequent school year.

If your child is not selected in the lottery, a waiting list will be developed. If seats remain open after the lottery closes, students will be scheduled on a first-come, first served basis until all Preschool seats are filled.

If interested in entering the Preschool expansion lottery, please:
