The GAPNS Difference
GAPNS is a magnificent preschool with a 35 year history of success in the Village of Goshen. We are a modified cooperative preschool whose administration, budgeting and operations are run by the parents through an elected Executive Board. Our learning model is based on “learning through play” with an emphasis on literacy, socialization, role-play and academics.
What our families expect:
Each class has a teacher and an assistant teacher(s) resulting in low child to teacher ratios
Our Teachers tailor daily activities to provide a challenging, yet nurturing curriculum for each individual student
Each child is allowed to work and learn at his/her own pace. Attention and encouragement are essential tools to reinforce each child's learning
An open door policy that welcome the participation of parents in the classroom in an effort to allow you the opportunity to partake in and enjoy your child's first educational experience
Parental involvement through optional classroom volunteering and committee work allows for us to provide your children with a program full of enrichment not found at other schools
The Goshen Central School District was established in 1937. The buildings and athletic facilities are well-maintained and serve as community centers, meeting many of the recreational needs of all age groups within the school district.
Approximately 2,900 students are enrolled in four buildings organized by grade levels to provide the most effective staffing and physical space for our enriching programs. The schools are almost within sight of each other on spacious grounds in the northeast corner of the Village of Goshen. Each building is encouraged to develop and maintain its own personality within the district’s overall philosophy. Each building has an active and supportive parent/teacher group and year-round educational opportunities.
Approximately 90 percent of our graduates enroll in further education, with many of the nation’s highly competitive colleges and universities regularly represented among their destinations. Goshen’s dropout rate is normally below one percent and standardized test results are consistently good.
