Keeping Families Connected

Our families mean the world to us and keeping them connected is one of our main goals. That’s why we created SproutAbout®, our exclusive family communications app that features live streaming video of the classroom and much, much more.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Children's Courtyard for North Plainfield! Our early childhood education program offers classes for children ages six weeks through twelve years in our Infant, Toddlers, Two's, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-K, Before and After School programs. We also offer a Preschool/Pre-K Select 3-hour program (9:15am-12:15pm) which follows the District 202 Holiday Calendar.

The talented staff members at our school have many years of experience in the field and partake in various training opportunities throughout the year. Each set of classroom teachers puts their special flair into the curriculum which is based on High Scope philosophy!

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Families have access to live streaming video of their child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, Sprout About. Assessments are completed throughout the year, and we offer family conferences twice a year to share your child’s progress in the program.

Call us today to schedule a tour!
