    The Manville Public School Preschool program uses the Tools of the Mind curriculum approved by the State of New Jersey. As part of the Tools of the Mind curriculum, students develop their skills in self-regulation , working memory, dramatic play, and cooperative learning. All of these elements are crucial in a preschool program. In addition to the State-approved curriculum, the Fundations early literacy program is infused both in morning meeting and center time. Understanding the importance of a strong literacy foundation, the Manville School District implements elements of phonemic awareness and phonics into student's group work and independent practice. The Manville School District is committed to providing students with the absolute best foundational skills through quality programming and instruction.
