The best pre-school opportunity in the area just doubled its capacity, as the Red Bank Regional High School Little Bucs Preschool program will add an afternoon class next fall. The program is operated free of charge to residents in the RBR sending-school towns of Little Silver, Red Bank and Shrewsbury as well as surrounding towns, in conjunction with the high school’s Early Childhood Development Program.
Running from 11:50 a.m. to 1:25 p.m., the newly added afternoon session takes place in a professional early education classroom located within the RBR school building. The classroom is self-contained, and has an exit door which opens onto a patio for outdoor activities. Drop off and pick up will take place at the front door of Red Bank Regional, and the ratio of student teachers to pre-schoolers in the program will be one-to-one.
