Programming Design and Goals:
Our Program provides services to parents desiring Christian preschool education during the morning hours, as well as to parents needing care for the entire day. In designing our program structure, we believe that it is best to provide children with age appropriate learning experiences.
The “Abeka” curriculum is based on non-denominational Christian teachings and values and has been used by Bethlehem Child Development Center since its opening. It includes numerous “hands-on” activities. We begin teaching Abeka at K2 and teach it through K4.
During the morning hours of the day, our classes have a more structured, academic schedule while afternoon classes are more play-oriented. Our structured classes continue from August/September to May/June. Our seasonal activities are from June to August. Though daycare hours will not change, the Program options will change. Parents will be notified of these changes well in advance.
Our trained faculty seeks to meet the interests and needs of each child and to provide for the growth of the child according to his/her ability in all areas of personality development:
