ROXBURY, NJ - Since 1973, Roxbury High School has offered “Education for Parenthood,” a program in which students have the opportunity to work with the community’s 3- and 4-year-old children in a preschool setting. This year is no different; Enrollments for the 2017/2018 school year are now being accepted.

Roxbury High School students are able to work one-on-one with the preschoolers to give them a unique preschool experience. The children enjoy learning, experiencing school, making friends and having fun.

Enrolled preschoolers attend classes Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the high school from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. for $75 per month. Parents and guardians drop off their kids while helping high school students learn techniques for working with children, skills that will help them in the class and with possible future careers.
