Hatboro-Horsham Four-Year-Old Preschool and Childcare Program

    The Hatboro-Horsham Four-Year-Old Preschool Program was developed in 2009 using the Pre-Kindergarten Pennsylvania Learning Standards for Early Childhood.  These standards are issued jointly by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Office of Child Development and Early Learning.  If you would like to review the Pre-Kindergarten Pennsylvania Learning Standards for Early Childhood, please click on the following link: PDE Pre-K Standards.

    The Hatboro-Horsham School District is a Department of Human Services licensed childcare provider.  Certified teachers will be employed in the program. The adult-to-child ratio is 1:10.

    The locations of the program:

    1. Crooked Billet Elementary,101 Meadowbrook Rd., Hatboro, PA 19040
    2. Hallowell Elementary, 501 West Moreland Rd., Horsham, PA 19044
    3. Simmons Elementary School, 411 Babylon Rd., Horsham, PA, 19044. 

    It is our goal to offer a four-year-old preschool program that provides a wide array of experiences that will integrate developmental knowledge with concepts, skills, and attitudes that children need for physical, social-emotional, and cognitive learning.  Our staff will work to build on the knowledge and experiences of each child.  Opportunities to develop new skills through active exploration of hands-on projects and materials will be a part of the daily routine.

    The curriculum used to guide children's educational journeys is:

    1. BluePrints 4.0 (literacy)
    2. Bridge in Mathematics, 
    3. Foss Science

    The four-year-old program is parent-fee funded.  Operational costs, as well as all other associated costs, will be paid for from the revenues generated from the monthly fees.
