About Us

In 1965, five members of the Wampus Elementary School PTA Board gathered with their children for weekly trips to nature centers, museums, picnics and unusual playgrounds. But the group members decided they wanted more consistency and more frequent activities. Approximately 12 members created the Wampus Preschool and formed playgroups that would meet a few times a week in addition to their day trips.


Separately, in 1967, the Coman Hill Preschool was founded when a few mothers who had been gathering for a playgroup organized with the purpose of entertaining their children with arts and crafts, field trips, story times and playgroups. With approximately 50 members, the group’s first year was considered a very big success.


In 1982 the two preschool groups merged to form the Byram Hills Preschool Association. We thank those involved in the formation of these organizations, for without them, we would not be enjoying the exciting and educational activities we have today! 

Today our organization has over 330 families - wow! As always, BHPA is entirely run by local parents volunteering their time. It is ever evolving to meet the needs of our parents, caregivers, and children.   Join us as members and reach out to get involved!
