The Hoboken Early Childhood Education Program (PreK3 and PreK4) is administered by the Board of Education and provides free preschool for all three- and four-year-old children living in Hoboken. For some of the Early Childhood Program locations, Hoboken Public Schools (HPS) contracts with two private providers – HOPES Cap, Inc. and Mile Square Early Learning Center. HPS, HOPES and Mile Square all follow the same program requirements with some slight differences amongst the three.
