The Gingham Giraffe Preschool has been serving Chatham and surrounding communities for over 30 years by preparing little learners for Kindergarten and beyond. We are thrilled to announce that in September 2021, we will offer the next step in early childhood education by providing a nurturing pathway to elementary school… the Gingham way!

In addition to traditional Kindergarten academics of language arts, reading and math, students will be exposed to our Enrichment and Electives programs: Social Studies, Science, Creative Arts, STEM and Technology.
Gingham Kindergarten will serve as a natural bridge between the emergent curriculum and readiness skills formed in our preschool and the academic skills necessary for continued success and independence throughout Elementary School.

Our program is in compliance with NJ core curriculum and will implement additional modalities to satisfy varied learning styles. Gingham Kindergarten will focus on academics, independent thinking, social emotional development… and fun! 

  • Minimum class size ten students, with one NJ certified teacher. Maximum sixteen students per class with additional staff if necessary. 8: 1 Student: Teacher ratio

  • Commitment to cultivating resilience, cooperation and genuine love of learning with a focus on success-oriented academics and enriching elective experiences.

  • Use of primary texts and curriculum of Chatham Public School for ease of transition to Elementary.

  • Tuition paid in quarterly installments of $2,875 (annual cost $11,500), Gingham Kindergarten offers an affordable full-day program for those seeking a non-sectarian, academically-focused program.
