Principal's Message

  • Jodi Benson Our mission at Bear Cub Preschool is Every Child, Every Day.  Our vision is to socially and academically prepare students for kindergarten through planned learning, an engaged environment, and family partnerships. We are so proud of our Bear Cub Preschool and look forward to a fantastic school year.  

    Bear Cub Preschool is the only District preschool in Scottsbluff Public Schools.  We are located at two different locations that serve 3 and 4-year-old students and their families.  Our teachers are all certified and hold degrees in Early Childhood education while each classroom also has at least one paraeducator at all times.

    Bear Cub Preschool works to meet the needs of their students through a variety of programs.  Our curriculum aligns with the Nebraska Early Learning Standards and Teaching Strategies GOLD, but is delivered through planned guided play and intentional small group instruction.

    Bear Cub Preschool values our close family atmosphere; we understand that in order for our students to be successful, they need the support of parents and the community.  Teachers and staff work to build relationships through home visits, family nights, programs and parent-teacher conferences.

    The goal and main focus at Bear Cub Preschool is to provide and foster a safe and engaging learning environment where all students feel valued and cared about.   We look forward to a wonderful school year. - Jodi Benson, Principal
