Pine Acres Early Childhood Center has evolved into a school that serves the youngest children in the community. We currently serve approximately 275 students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade. Our early childhood program has a progressive curriculum that is aligned with Common Core Standards. Parents are strongly encouraged to enroll their 4-year-old children in our pre-kindergarten program in order to keep pace with Deptford’s advanced curriculum. Our half-day pre-kindergarten program focuses on developing academic readiness skills, as well as meaningful social experiences. As the children move on to kindergarten, and first grade they are challenged and motivated by the Go Math!  program, literature-based experiences, world languages, computer technology, science, social studies and health.

The mission of Pine Acres Early Childhood Center is to provide an emotionally, intellectually and physically safe learning environment under the direction of the most caring, dynamic and innovative educators. In order for our children to have the most successful learning experience possible, we embrace and maintain high standards. Children’s curiosity, motivation to learn and taking pride in accomplishments are the keys to success in school achievement. We endeavor to provide our students with these keys for success.
