ROOM FOR MORE LITTLE BUCS, AT RBR

littlebucs1-2646913Spaces are still open for the Little Bucs Preschool Program at Red Bank Regional, offered from October to June as a community service for residents of Little Silver, Red Bank, Shrewsbury and neighboring towns. 

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

The director of the Little Bucs Preschool at Red Bank Regional High School has announced that openings are still available for local children to take part in the free-tuition community service program for the 2015–2016 school year. The preschool accepts three (or very nearly three) and four-year olds from the RBR sending towns of Little Silver, Red Bank, Shrewsbury and neighboring municipalities. The program operates four mornings a week, Tuesday through Friday from 8:45 to 10:23 am. The first day of school is Tuesday, October 6, 2015, and the program will run through early June.

The Little Bucs Preschool program is an integral part of the RBR Early Childhood course of study, which is one of many concentrations of study open to high school students. Little Bucs operates in a fully-equipped Child Development classroom at RBR. The program features a child to high school “teacher” ratio of one-to-one. It 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.

lilbucs2-9228716According to Susan Eads, an RBR Family and Consumer Science teacher who has supervised the program for the past 12 years, “The program provides a mutual benefit for both ends of the age spectrum. The high school students get an incredible hands-on teaching opportunity while the preschoolers receive a wonderful early-learning and socialization experience.

“A strong bond develops between the children and the high school students, and I am always impressed by the leadership and creativity of my students in their role as teachers. And, of course, it is a joy working with the children!”

Operated as a community service and non-profit preschool, the program offers free tuition 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 Susan Eads at: [email protected] or call (732)842-8000 ext. 331. Anyone interested in applying for a spot should leave their name, phone number, and mailing address.
