EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - It may still be winter, but it's also already time to think about your child's first school experience next year as East Brunswick rolls out plans for another of the district's preschool programs.

Applications for the 2018-19 East Brunswick High School Bears and Cubs Preschool Program are now available online at  www.ebnet.org/preschool, in the Main Office at East Brunswick High School located at 380 Cranbury Road and at the receptionist desk of the Administration Building at 760 Route 18.

 

FREE to East Brunswick residents, the Bears and Cubs Preschool is an elective for high school juniors and seniors interested in a career in education. In this double period, full year course, high school students learn, plan, teach and observe children, ages 3-5 years of age, in a laboratory preschool setting. Prior to the preschool students’ arrival, the high school students learn about child development, teaching methods, observational techniques, as well as routines that are needed to work with preschool-aged children.  The high school students then observe, plan for, and teach the preschool students under the supervision of their high school teachers.
