Neptune Visit- Tools of the Mind

On Monday, June 9 a group of preschool staff: 2 directors, 2 Master Teachers, 2 classroom teachers and the Supervisor of Early Childhood visited the Early Childhood Center in Neptune Township. Neptune Township has been implementing Tools of the Mind in its preschool classrooms for approximately five years. The goal of the visit was to meet with a trainer from Tools of the Mind and see the program in action. The staff split up among classrooms, observed the program in the classrooms, discussed the program with the classroom teachers and had the opportunity to have the Tools of the Mind trainer answer any questions regarding the program. Everyone left the visit with a positive feeling toward the Tools of the Mind program and excitement to see the program implemented in Hoboken's preschool program in September 2008 .
