Preschool

Every weekday morning from 9:10 AM to 1:00 PM, the halls and classrooms at Bethlehem are filled with laughter, tiny voices, music and excitement. Our preschool for children ages 18 months - 5 years is a safe environment for children to learn and grow. It is a special place where children are loved, respected and feel safe while away from mom.  


Our two year old students begin to learn trust, while they begin to realize that mom will come back and their teacher cares and will protect them.  

Our three year old students begin to learn about the world around them and that it no longer revolves around them!


Our "sponge-like" four year old students take in so much through all their senses as they prepare for "Big School" and the many years of education in front of them.


By the time a child is ready to leave preschool they will probably know how to write their name, know their colors and shapes, their ABC's and numbers, know 26 Bible verses and that Jesus loves them very much. They will know how to share, how to listen, how to obey and how make new friends. They use their fine motor skills as they color and paint and cut and those large muscle skills to run and climb.



Come tour our facilities, discover our more about our school and see what a special place we are for kids.

OUR PURPOSE AND IDENTITY

 

Our primary objective is to provide a safe and happy atmosphere in which children can grow spiritually and socially. We offer a variety of enrichment activities to prepare children for Kindergarten and the educational environment.

 

We desire to be a bridge for each child between home and "big school" to ready them for their educational years that follow.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that children develop to their fullest potential in a Christian atmosphere; therefore, we consider the developmental needs of the children's growth in all areas - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual - as a continuous interrelated process.

 

We believe that children function better around children of similar ages; therefore, children are grouped according to birth dates and arranged in regular school year ages.

 

We believe that children need to be exposed to many different positive things to become well-rounded individuals; therefore, we provide a balanced curriculum including music, finger plays, Bible stories and field trips along with activities emphasizing numbers, letters, shapes and colors.

 

We believe that children absorb attitudes and behaviors from the people surrounding them; therefore, we strive to present the best role models possible.

 

A trained teaching staff to nurture and guide each child. Every classroom has a lead teacher, assistant teacher, and/or a floating assistant teacher.

 

Average Class size: 1/8 for 3 and 4 year classes
