Preschool Enrollment and Tour Information
We are excited that you are interested in Bethlehem Child Care Center (BCCC) for your child’s preschool.
Information for Registration
BCCC will open enrollment for the 2020 – 21 school year on Monday, February 17, 2020 (President’s Day). We will host tours throughout January and early February. Our goal for the tours is to give parents/guardians an opportunity to see the classrooms in action, meet teachers, and ask questions. We limit each tour to 3 families in hopes that the amount of people visiting the classrooms doesn’t overwhelm the children in our program. Each year families ask if they can bring their incoming preschool children along for the tour. I leave that decision up to individual families because sometimes that is what works best for the family. However, in my experience, not having your child along typically allows adults more of an opportunity to get all the verbal information and interact directly with the tour leader and teachers. We will enroll children based on three criteria:
1. The order in which we receive their paperwork.
2. The paperwork is complete.
3. Children who will be 3 by September 1 will be enrolled before children who have birthdays between September 1 and December 31.
Our Wait List will be organized in the order in which the paperwork was submitted, including the children who will be between 33 and 36 months at the start of the school year. Our 2020-21 school year registration takes place before the summer 2020 sign-up does, however, children who enroll for the fall are welcome to attend in the summer. That information will be ready in mid-March.
