BCCC Summer Preschool Program

We know child development! Parents trust our center because we provide a safe and nurturing environment for their children, with a focus on developmentally appropriate learning through play.
Our summer preschool program is designed to make the most of the warm weather, sunshine and the outdoors. We emphasize playing active games, exploring nature in our playground as well as some of the city’s parks and playgrounds, small and large group activities, and engaging social skills to build friendships. We take weekly field trips using either the city bus, light rail or a chartered bus.

Our preschool program is for children 3 to 5 years old. Children must be fully potty trained in order to attend.

Previous summer field trips and center activities have included:
• Children’s Museum
• Area libraries
• Swim lessons at the YWCA
• Visits to Longfellow, Hiawatha, Brackett, Cooper & Matthew’s Park
• Minnehaha Park/Wabun Park Pool
• Tamarack Nature Center’s Discovery Hollow
• Structured and open art activities
• Playing outside every day the weather permits on on-site playground
