Hooray for preschool


It's no secret that Princeton is an extraordinary place for high quality education at all levels, and preschool is no exception. With more than 20 schools offering preschool and pre-kindergarten programs in Princeton municipality alone, parents have a wealth of options – and the choices can be overwhelming. These schools provide a wide range of philosophies, techniques and services for providing the very best in early childhood education. What it really comes down to is finding the best fit for each individual child and their family.


Back to school essential homework & learning resources


Looking for resources for your homework? Princeton Public Library provides access to many subscription databases, and a great deal of information that can’t be found on the web. They are great tools for students and do not take up any room in a backpack!


Local delight


If you haven’t visited Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton lately, you really should. My family and I visited recently after a couple of years, and WOW what a wonderful delight! Also delightful is that, if you have a Princeton Public Library card, you can reserve a museum pass and get free admission for four people. Be warned, though, it is our most popular pass. You can reserve the pass up to 90 days in advance.


Nano Day:Think big and think small

Combining fun hands-on activities with presentations on current research, the young and curious of all ages can explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces. It runs from 1-4 p.m. in the Community Room.
