The Gingham Giraffe Preschool 

Welcome to Gingham! 


Located in Chatham, NJ, we are a non-profit school for children ages 2 - 6. Now in our twenty-sixth year, Gingham continues to grow due to our multi-faceted approach to education. We boast a fantastic student-teacher ratio, a director certified in special education, and a facility made up of beautiful and spacious classrooms, a private, shaded playground and full sized gymnasium. 


What's in a name? 


The whimsical Gingham Giraffe represents the happy, child-oriented atmosphere that can be found in each classroom. We believe that the first school experience should be a positive one, with parents, children and teachers working together. 


Our Mission 

Our primary goal is to ensure that each child develops confidence in his/her abilities. Positive self-esteem enables children to explore and experiment. With guidance, encouragement and lots of praise, a strong link to learning will result.


We continue to evolve our programs to meet the growing needs of parents and children. Whether you need an early drop off due to your work schedule, or an after school activity for your active child, Gingham works to ensure each student's needs are met and parental expectations are exceeded.
