Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex 1 (GPPA 1).  Our building consists of ten classrooms, a nurse's station and offices for the following staff members: Principal,  Master Teacher and Social Workers. We have a gymnasium and a beautiful outdoor playground for students to use for gross motor.

GPPA 1 offers a high quality early childhood program, consisting of developmentally appropriate practices. We have a kind, warm and welcoming staff at our school. We pride ourselves in providing students with an engaging curriculum and a second home. Classrooms are arranged in interest areas to help promote purposeful play. Small children learn through an engaging environment that is print rich and materials that will enhance their cognitive skills. 

The district chosen curriculum for the preschool is Creative Curriculum. Creative Curriculum is a research based curriculum that spans from birth through third grade. The curriculum focuses on the following domains: Social-Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, and The Arts. This curriculum is a New Jersey Department of Education approved and meets all of our Early Childhood mandates. All teachers have been trained on the Curriculum and Assessment processes.
