IMPORTANT SUMMER INFORMATION
Dear Residents -
The Board of Trustees along with our Manager, Janet Sedaka, and Assistant Manager, Sue Northrop, have been hard at work planning for our FAMILY SUMMER PROGRAMS.
If you have previously worked for our summer programs and plan to return, or would like to join the Radburn Summer team, please contact the office to obtain an employment application. firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com or 201.796.1300.
For those planning to participate in summer programs, registration forms will be provided through the bulletin, on the website, and through our email list. Please keep an eye out in the coming weeks, and check the deadlines so we can plan and hire staff accordingly.
We would like to share some information on our upcoming summer programs:
Our Tot Lot Director, Gwen Greenwald, has moved on to a new position and will not be available to return this summer. We thank Gwen for all the time and love she put into the Tot Lot program for our youngest residents and wish her luck in her new endeavor!
We are excited to announce that Annie King will be joining us this summer as our Tot Lot Director. Annie is graduating in May from Manhattan College with a Bachelor’s Degree in early childhood education and special education. Annie grew up in Radburn and has been a part of our summer programs since she was a child in Tot Lot. She has worked with Radburn’s youngest children during Tot Swim, and as a coach and mentor for the children on swim team. She has also been a lifeguard and Pool Assistant at the Radburn pools. Under Annie’s direction, we will be extending the time of Tot Lot to coincide with Playgroup: the new hours will be 9:30am -12:00pm, and all Tots will be dismissed from Tot Lot play area daily. Tot Lot will run June 10th - August 16th. This program is for children 2-5 years old.
By popular demand, Kelly Sullivan is returning as our Director of Playgroup. Playgroup is a 6 week program that will run July 1 - August 9th for children entering kindergarten- entering 7th grade.
We are happy to announce some new additions to this already popular program:
We are happy to welcome back Susan Neggia as our Head Swim Team Coach. Susan grew up in Radburn and has been an integral part of our swim program since she was a child, and we are so lucky to have her as a mentor for Radburn’s children. We will be providing more information on tryouts. Please remember that swim team is by tryouts only. Swimmers previously on swim team do not need to tryout again. Space is limited due to safety, and to provide the most positive experience for our more advanced swimmers. Swim lessons are provided to all children during playgroup.
We also welcome back Terry Buksar as our Director of Tot Swim lessons for children aged 3 to 5 years old (not in playgroup). A lifetime Radburn Resident, Terry grew up in Radburn and raised her own family here. She has been a staple in our swim program, having led the swim team to many championships. Terry has taught hundreds of Radburn kids to swim over the years. Tot swim is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-1:30 or 1:30-2:00. Terry, along with her amazing staff, will provide a safe, positive experience for Radburn’s youngest swimmers.
