Forest Kindergarten

Since SSJC first opened, in 2010, we have incorporated the value of bringing all our students into the surrounding parks, every day, regardless of the weather, as we believe in the importance of creating a positive relationship with our environment.  Our backyard is a recognized Wildlife Habitat, and the children are at the core of its upkeep and sustainability. The identity of our school community is intertwined in nature. 

We are looking to deepen this commitment by embarking upon the development of an outdoor program for a Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten Class for the 2017-2018 school year.  The class will enter Jersey City Reservoir No. 3, where they will spend their school day.
