Whitehouse Preparatory School

Tel: (908)534-0026
Grades: PK - K | 60 students
Whitehouse Preparatory School is a premier independent Kindergarten school located in Whitehouse Station.
The School's core philosophy is the belief all children are endowed with unique talents and abilities that, if properly nurtured and inspired, will enable them to excel and achieve wonderful things in life.
In this respect, education is not simply imparting information and skills from teacher to student; rather, it is a two-way process whereby the teacher serves as a catalyst for enhancing each child’s unique abilities and qualities.
This is best accomplished by sparking within each student his or her passions and allowing them to discover and embrace their own creativity. Before and after care programs are available.

School Notes:

  • Preschool Program (3 year olds): The Preschool Program at Whitehouse Prep is for 3 year olds turning 4. The program is a great first step in the learning process. It is a developmentally appropriate program that makes learning fun and builds a great early foundation for our KI program. The Preschool Program is designed to integrate directly into our Kindergarten I class.
  • Two Year Kindergarten Program (4 and 5 year olds): Times have changed and the academic demands on Kindergarten children are dramatically more rigorous than ever before. However, even though the academic demands have changed, 4, 5, and 6-year-old children are still the same developmentally. Consequently, they require a program that will afford them the time necessary to build a solid foundation for meeting the challenges of first grade. Whitehouse Prep offers a program that allows for this growth with two years of full day instruction from 4 to 6 years old. The curricula for the Kindergarten I and II classes are fully integrated and complementary. Enrichment instruction in violin, Chinese (Mandarin), acting/drama, art and music/movement are integrated into the curriculum and is all included in the tuition.
  • Kinder*Connect (5 year olds): Whitehouse Prep offers a premier kindergarten wrap-around program (half-day) as a way of extending and enhancing the public school half-day Kindergarten class. Students have the opportunity to improve their basic math, reading and writing skills as well as receive enrichment instruction in Mandarin Chinese, violin, art, music and conflict resolution.
