Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Attention preschoolers: one of the area’s leading high schools wants you! There are still openings available for the Little Bucs Preschool program at Red Bank Regional High School for the 2014-2015 school year. The preschool program, which operates four mornings a week (Tuesday through Friday from 9:01 to 10:23 am) accepts three (and very nearly three) and four-year olds from the RBR sending towns of Little Silver, Red Bank, Shrewsbury and neighboring towns.

The RBR Little Bucs Pre-school program has operated for many years as part of the Early Childhood curriculum at RBR. All students taking the class have completed a prerequisite course, “Child and Personal Development”, studying children from prenatal development through adolescence. Many of the students will be heading to careers in education and other areas involving early childhood. Little Bucs features a child to high school “teacher” ratio of one-to-one and offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum for young children, promoting socialization and large and small motor skill development. Activities include arts and crafts, music, story-time, free play, gym, show-and tell, snack, and circle time.

The tentative opening day is October 7, and the program runs through early June. Operated as a community service and non-profit preschool, tuition is free to attendees, with a small fee of $100 charged to defray costs associated with special projects, field trips, holiday events, and a personal yearbook for each child.

For inquiries and applications contact preschool director Susan Eads at: seads@rbrhs.org or call (732)842-8000 ext. 331. Anyone interested in applying for a spot should leave their name, phone number, and mailing address.
