Looking for a playgroup for your 3- or 4-year old? Why not consider Head Start II, a free, federally funded preschool program for income-eligible children born in 2012 or 2013. Head Start II has been operating for over 15 years and is currently housed at 285 River Ave. Plans are underway to open a third classroom and move the site to Airport Road.
Head Start II is geared to the Orthodox community. Classes are led by warm and loving Morahs and the education closely mirrors that which is provided by the many playgroup and preschool providers in the community. It includes Aleph Bais and Yom Tov. Also, the school calendar is closely in sync with local yeshivos and girls’ schools. Free kosher breakfast and lunch is provided each day. Limited bus transportation is available.
Call Gittie at (732) 534-9710 for more information or to make an appointment to apply. Children with special needs may also apply.

I sent my daughter to HeadStart2 (the kosher program) and she did beautifully, was super ready for Primary. We loved Morah Yael and Chanie and had a great 2 years. It did not cost us anything and we had morning bussing. I would recommend the program to anyone looking for a pre-school for their kids. Keep up the great program!!
They are moving into state of the art new building on airport rd for the next school year. will have 3 classes of frum kids. perhaps more. lots of staff around. very safe environment. they teach the kids lots of life skills that they wouldn’t get in a regular playgroup. healthy food. brush their teeth. they go on cute trips too.
there is a possibility that they may provide busing both ways next year!
Saying that they accept special needs kids is interesting, because they don’t actually provide any services in school.
you MUST have up to date dental and vaccinations to join this program.
Can you please post income eligibility guidelines?
contact Gittie on above number. she’ll help you. if you have a large family, you will for sure qualify.
Super program and super staff!!! What can be better!
