BCS Seeks Early Childhood Partner

Buckley Community Schools is looking for a partnership. 

After several years of working closely with Little Bear Child Development Center, the school district is looking for a new partner. As of August 22, LBCDC is closing its doors. The center provides both before– and after– school programming, child care, and a pre–school option.

Buckley Community Schools is seeking a good match to run a similar program and provide opportunities for our youngest learners. The District would like someone to provide a combination of all three of the services that LBCDC provided for our students — at a reasonable cost for our families.

The school’s superintendent feels the working relationship between the school and center has been positive.

“We have had a great partnership with Little Bear for a number of years,” Superintendent Rick Heitmeyer said. “Our goal is to fill the void and continue to provide these important options for our families.”

Heitmeyer said the school will seek partners for about two weeks, then interview candidates to see if there is a good match.

“We will be looking for someone who has a similar philosophy to what we have, someone who can offer these important services for our community and families,” Heitmeyer said.

The school has a building on site that will be used for the programming. Families appreciate that the day care is located right on site because children have access to opportunities at the school as well as it’s almost a one–stop process with LBCDC right on campus.

If you believe you could be a good partner for the school, please consider applying.

Send a resumé, cover letter, and proposal idea to:

Make a recommendation to the Board of Education August 19 

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Heitmeyer via email at rheitmeyer@buckleyschools.com or call the office at (231) 269–3325. We are looking forward to a great partnership for our children and families!

Looking for a fun cultural experience for your family? We are in need of host families for high school exchange students to attend your local public or private high school (Private school students pay their own tuition, etc.) Please help by volunteering or by passing this to someone that may have an interest in this wonderful experience.
We are looking for volunteers who are interested in hosting an exchange student for the 14/15 school year. We have students 15-18 years old from around the world that will be arriving in late August for 5 or 10 months. We need host families for these students. We have students interested in a variety of activities including all kinds of sports, scouts, youth groups, piano, art, dance music, reading, math/science, skiing, baseball, soccer, volleyball, hiking/camping, basketball, choir, band, drawing and painting.
Host families provide a bed, meals at home and an inclusive family atmosphere. Students can share a room with a host sibling of the same sex and over the age of 13. Students take care of their own personal expenses and host families offer an opportunity to get to know the “real” Americans. Students would love to get to  know your community and become a part of your family.
We welcome all kinds of families; single parent, single person, couples with no kids, retirees and empty “nesters” ! Exchange students can be a great role model and mentor for young kids. Bring the world into your home and have a memorable experience in the process!
Host Families provide the following to host a student:
- A bed for the student (students can share a room)
- Meals at home
- Loving, caring, environment for the student
Students come with the following:
- Ability to speak English at a high school level
- Complete Health Insurance
- Spending money for their needs (hygiene items, school supplies, clothes, long distance phone calls, etc.)

We have students from all over the world including: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam and many more.
Your interest is greatly appreciated, as we have students to place with good host families! Exchange students can be a positive influence on your family, school, and community! It’s so much fun to be a host family! If you would like more information, please contact your local coordinator as soon as possible so that we can give the exciting news to the student that their American dream is going to come true!
