The Scottsbluff Public Schools Bear Cub Preschool has received a $130,000 Early Childhood Expansion Grant from the Nebraska Department of Education for the 2018-19 school year.
Funding from this grant will be used to add an additional preschool classroom. This full day classroom for 4 year old students will be housed at Roosevelt Elementary in collaboration with Educational Service Unit 13 and Head Start.
With the addition of this classroom Bear Cub Preschool will be able to serve up to 140 students in 3 full day classrooms for 4 year olds and 2 half day classrooms for three year olds.
The curriculum aligns with the Nebraska Early Learning Standards and Teaching Strategies GOLD, but is delivered through planned guided play and intentional small group instruction. The Bear Cub Preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2018-19 school year. Applications are available at the preschool at 2512 2nd Avenue or online at www.sbps.net/preschool.
