Everyone at BBLI is so caring and kind. Ms. Jean, Ms. Ayda and Ms. Mayra are so quick to offer Brody cuddles and hugs and give extra attention if needed. It makes leaving him each day so much easier to know he is loved AND learning.

Teach Smart Learning System by Hatch

Dear Community Leader and Friend:

Beyond Basic Learning (BBL) has more great news and we want to unveil our excitement with you at an event on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 1:00 p.m.

BBL is the very first state-of-the-art nursery school in the State of New Jersey to install Teach Smart Learning System by Hatch, the only comprehensive and interactive Smart Board package designed and created exclusively for the early childhood community.  Teach Smart is an easy- to- use system designed with specific research-based tools to assist learners and early childhood educators.

At BBL, we are very excited about making this Smart Board technology available for our pre-schoolers.  All activities are tied to national pre-K standards in critical skill areas such as pre-literacy, language math and social studies and science.  The utilization of this technology is another testament to our high standards for providing early childhood education with excellence.

At the two hour presentation next week, Smart Board technology representatives will demonstrate the system for our other community leaders and friends, regional early childhood educators and the media. 

We hope you can join us!
