Give them the best start.

Located in the heart of Chatham, NJ, we are a non-denominational private school offering morning and full-day programs for children ages 2 - Kindergarten. Opened in 1990, Gingham serves our community by providing play-based learning, academics and electives offered in a nurturing environment. 

Gingham's reputation for stellar academics in a family-style atmosphere speaks for itself.... Our unique curriculum with a six-month age span in every classroom

sets each of our students up for success!
