Welcome to Barclay Early Childhood Center!

The Barclay Early Childhood Program is a comprehensive preschool that services both typically developing and special needs children, ranging in ages from three to five years old. The goal of our program is to provide our students with an exceptional early childhood learning experience.

The program services over 350 children, 40% of which are children with special needs. Our children with special needs are placed in the program through identification, evaluation, and eligibility procedures. Typically developing children (children without special needs) are placed in the program through an application and lottery procedure that begins in February and ends in March of each year.

Our classes offer a variety of programs that are designed to meet the specific needs of each child. Our highly trained teaching staff involves the children in numerous activities that focus on developing the following areas: sensory integration, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, cognitive abilities as well as language skills. Teachers and specialists utilize a multi-sensory approach when teaching concepts and skills. Our standards based curriculum, along with remedial and compensatory training, is designed to help children reach their potential.

The teachers at the Barclay Early Childhood Center are NJ State Certified and hold both regular and special education certifications. Our Child Study Team includes a social worker, a learning disabilities consultant, and a psychologist. The teaching staff and specialists, along with the Child Study Team, work as a cohesive team, to best meet the needs of our children.


Important Reminders

Early Intervention Services

If you are concerned that your baby is not meeting developmental milestones, contact Early Intervention Services for assistance.

Absentee Hotline

If your child is absent from school, you will receive an automated attendance call to all available numbers and email addresses. We encourage you to call the Absentee Hotline, 856-429-7283, and press 1 or email Colleen Thompson, as early as possible. If we receive the call early enough, we can stop the call from going out, however, please understand that there is still the possibility you will receive a call. Thank you!

Barclay is an Allergy Aware Building

Read important information explaining why we ask that no peanuts/nuts, latex balloons or perfumes enter the building.

Tuition Students

Tuition payments are due on the 15th of each month. Please send Check or Money Order (no cash), along with your coupon to:

Cherry Hill Public Schools
Central Business Office
Attn: Lin Czerwinski
45 Ranoldo Terrace
Cherry Hill, NJ 08034

Payments are due the 15th of every month, August - April. Tuition payments are no longer received at Barclay. Checks and Money Orders should be made payable to "Cherry Hill BOE" and mailed in time to be received by the 15th of the month to avoid a late fee of $15.

Parking and Student Drop Off

Parking at school is limited. Parents are asked to park either in the front of the school building or on the street. We ask that you obey the posted "No Parking" signs on the street in front of the building, and the yellow curbs which also indicate no parking. Please do not block residential driveways.

Additional spaces are available on Dorado, Winston Way and Covered Bridge Road as the spots in front of the school fill up quickly.

We ask that the parking lot in the rear of the school be reserved for faculty and staff, which avoids having staff members park in the front of the building or on the street, further congesting the front of the school during drop off and pick up. Carpooling, arriving early and walking are strategies that some of our parents have used to avoid the parking problems at Barclay in the past.

Please hold your child's hand while navigating around the school grounds. Playing on the school grounds during drop off/pick up time is prohibited. The school does not assume responsibility for monitoring students when under the care of their parents.
