Preschool Registration


2024-2025 SCHOOL YEAR

Howell Township Public Schools will be offering free, full day preschool for all 3-and-4-year-old children beginning September 1, 2024. In order to attend preschool, a child must be a Howell resident and three or four years of age on or before October 1 to be eligible to enter the preschool program for the current school year.

Children currently attending a preschool program in Howell Township Public Schools during the current school year and will attend Pre-K 4 in the subsequent school year do not need to register for Pre-K 4 as you are already enrolled in our preschool program.


December 5th

Adelphia School 

(495 Adelphia Rd, Freehold, NJ 07728)


December 5th is an open registration event for preschool students to attend school beginning the 2024-2025 school year. While you are not required to schedule a time slot to attend this event, you MUST first pre-register through our online registration system prior to attending. If the required pre-registration and/or documents are missing, we will then need to complete your child’s preschool registration at the next event.  Please see the registration process directions below. 

Additional dates for in-person preschool registration events will be announced. Be sure to check back on this website and the Howell Township Public Schools social media accounts for updates. 

Registration Checklist

Preschool Registration Process

Registration will consist of five steps. You must complete steps 1-4, including the online pre-registration, and locate and complete all required documents prior to attending the in-person registration event (step 5).



Use the district’s  MySchool Locator to determine the school the student will attend based on the home address. District reorganization, budgetary fluctuations, class size considerations or a student’s needs, could impact your child’s school of attendance. Note the school name and continue with Step 2.


Complete the Online Pre-Registration. Please note, preschool students SHOULD NOT schedule an appointment with the Central Registration office as they will be attending an in-person registration event to collect and verify required documents. During the in-person event, the Registrar will review the required documents and proofs of residency.


IMPORTANT: Write down the username and password when creating your parent/guardian account.



Download, print and complete the Residency Affidavits and Health Requirement Forms Packet and bring the completed packet with you to the upcoming in-person registration event. If you do not have access to a printer, copies of the Residency Affidavits and Health Requirement Forms Packet can be picked up at the central registration office.

Locate the required documents listed below and bring them with you to the in-person registration event.




Attend the in-person registration event on December 5, 2023. NOTE: Additional dates for in-person preschool registration events will be announced for you to attend an in-person registration event if you are not available to attend on December 5. Allow yourself time to complete all required documents before attending our in-person registration events. If required documents are missing during the in-person registration session, we will ask you to attend the next scheduled event.
