PreK Program Information

Belleville Public Schools is pleased to have the opportunity to offer free, full-day preschool in our Belleville Beginners PreK program to all enrolled students.


Our typical school day is a 6-hour day from Monday through Friday. We follow the school calendar for Belleville Public Schools, in all school locations. 


For the 2021-2022 school year, the school day will run from 9:15am to 3:15pm each school day, unless the BPS school calendar indicates otherwise.

A student’s age group is determined by how old he or she is on October 1st of that school year. All students who are 3-years-old on or before October 1, 2021, will be enrolled in a 3-year-old class. All students who are 4-years-old on or before October 1, 2021, will be enrolled in a 4-year-old class. Regardless of how old a student is at the end of that school year, all students will follow the sequence of classes for his or her age-level, unless otherwise specified. Any student who is enrolled as a 3-year-old, will automatically roll-over to a 4-year-old class the following year, dependent upon residency. 

All students MUST reside in Belleville, NJ to maintain enrollment in our program.
