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.
