What’s New at Jack In The Box Schools!
Welcome to our new Owner/Director
In February 2020, Ms Floria Kasparian joined the Jack in the Box Schools team as the new owner and Director of all three schools. We are all delighted to have added a loving and devoted person that has many years of experience in early Childhood Education.
Our staff has been participating in STEM professional development webinars. As they continue their training, the classrooms are filled with new projects and creations having used the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math methods.
WE’RE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE THE NEW ‘KIDREPORTS’ DAILY REPORTS SYSTEM!
In keeping up with Grow New Jersey Kids advancements and evolving technology, our school is excited to introduce an online daily report program called KID REPORTS.
KidReports is a mobile solution that brings parent engagement and classroom management together in one place. Including daily reports, photo sharing and a child assessment tool that we developed, we know our parents will love this new digital approach to receiving timely updates each day. Please speak with a Director for more information about KidReports.
GROW NJ KIDS
Three years ago, the state of New Jersey received a grant to help improve preschools. GROW NJ KIDS was started. Jack In The Box Schools are excited to be one of the first to participate in GROW NJ KIDS and assist in this project. We are now excited to announce that we have been awarded an awesome 3 Star Rating on the Grow NJ Kids Quality Rating Scale (the highest rating for a facility of our type)! Thank you to all of our teachers and staff who worked so hard to achieve this accomplishment! Please contact us for more information on the changes we made during this process or to visit our Three Gold Star School Today!
