Kindly visit Jersey City Board of Education website for full details on local schools:  http://www.jcboe.org/ or rhttp://www.greatschools.org/

School information:
Below is a website of the local moms network who could be very helpful.  They meet around in town with their strollers and discuss..baby stuff.  They are always more then willing to share information on daycare and schools.  I think its best to get this information straight from parents with children who are enrolled in these schools and daycare.
Here is also some recommendations from one of my past clients who has a 1, 4 and an 8 year old in Jersey City.

  • If you have a new born, there is an extensive nanny network. They usually all meet at Van Vorst park, and also go to Hamilton park to play.They typically cost $500-$600 per week.They usually work from 9am -6pm.
  • 2 year olds that are potty trained can go to the Waterfront Montessori school in Paulus Hook, the Hamilton Park Montessori, or the Garden Preschool which are both located in the former St Francis hospital on Hamilton Park. The costs are $1500 per month per child for 8am-6 pm coverage. Hamilton Park Motessori is $12k per year. Garden Pre school is a co-op, and is around $500 month.
  • 4 yrs to grade school has #16 school on the corner of Washington and Grand St. Public, highly acclaimed school. Also OLC is a Catholic Grammar School on Marin and Grand. About $7k a year. after school care is available.
