TSNS is searching for qualified and certified preschool teachers, aides and substitutes for next school year! We would like to rely on families and friends of the TSNS program to refer candidates. We are accepting and reviewing resumes of qualified candidates and making selections to pursue further with a classroom observation.

We are hopeful that next year we will return back to our original classes

that are grouped by ages.

Registration for returning students will begin the end of February. Registration for new families will begin in March.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining our TSNS family please send them our way! Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Teresa Dickinson at TSNSNJ@gmail.com or (267) 265-7914.
