The Cranbury School District is offering two integrated preschool programs for the 2013-2014 school year titled Cranbuddies. There will be a class for three-year-olds and another designed for four-year-olds. Both classes will be taught by a teacher certified for Early Childhood Development and Special Education and a teacher assistant.
