About the Montclair Community Pre-K
The Montclair Community Pre-K is a private, non-profit program with a public mission.  We opened our doors in 1998 with the following mission statement: To offer all four year olds in Montclair a high quality, affordable education that prepares them for kindergarten and beyond, regardless of the ability of the family to pay tuition.

The Montclair Community Pre-K is a nationally recognized early childhood education program.  We are dedicated to educational excellence and are a model school in the local community, as well as in New Jersey and across the country.

To ensure we fulfill our mission, we offer tuition assistance on a sliding-scale based on household income. We are proud to say that no Montclair resident has ever been denied admission because of lack of funds.
