EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Applications for the 2020-2021 East Brunswick High School Bears and Cubs Preschool Program are now available online at: www.ebnet.org/preschool.

FREE to East Brunswick residents, the Bears and Cubs Preschool is an elective for high school juniors and seniors interested in pursuing careers involving children. 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, how to conduct an observation, appropriate lesson planning as well as routines that are needed to work with preschool-aged children. The high school students then observe, plan, and execute lessons for the whole class or their specific preschooler under the supervision of a certified teacher.
