David C. Abbott Early Learning Center A Rainbow of Stars!

Please Create A Marquee



Welcome to the David C. Abbott PTO!  Our PTO is a parent-run organization, with the support of our teachers and staff, with the main goal of providing fun, educational experiences for our DAELC students as they begin their journey within Marlboro Township Public Schools.  The DAELC PTO executes monthly assemblies, events, and activities during the school year to enrich our students’ experiences at DAELC.


For the 2022-23 school year, PTO events will include our annual Fall Pumpkin Patch, Fall & Spring Scholastic Book Fairs, Winter-themed Activities, school-wide 100 Days of School Celebration, Spring Fling, and Field Day, to name just a few.  Additional student and teacher favorites include chick-hatchings, classroom butterflies, and a number of fun and educational assemblies.  All of our PTO school events and activities are made possible through membership dues, fundraising, and parent involvement.  The DAELC PTO also supports our community and surrounding areas through food drives and additional volunteer opportunities.  


Supporting the PTO is a wonderful way to be involved in your child’s education.  By sharing your time, effort, and donations, parents, guardians, and caregivers can show their dedication to making DAELC and your child’s experiences here, the best it can be.
