BURLINGTON SCHOOLS SEEKING PEER MODELS FOR PRESCHOOL
By Jeanne Collins, Superintendent of Schools – Burlington School District, Colchester Ave
Wed, 12 November 2008
The Burlington School District Essential early Education Preschool is looking for 3 & 4 year olds with good play, communication and behavior skills.
Slots Available: 3 Mornings a week or 3 Afternoons a week
“A GREAT PRE-SCHOOL EXPERIENCE”
MUST BE A BURLINGTON RESIDENT
Advertising for children who can be good role models does not exactly leave one with the best impression of the public pre-school, does it?
They should have just said: “Openings available for your well-behaved child with good communication and play skills to learn poor behavior, bad words, and how to fight with other children.”
Good behavior does not rub off on 3 and 4 year olds, but bad behavior does. In fact, it rubs off on children of all ages. And it is very hard to undo, trust me.
