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 these criteria:
1. The order in which we receive completed paperwork.
2. Beginners: children must be 3 by September 1. Pre-K: children must be 4 by September 1.
3. For applications in the Beginners room: children who turn 3 between September 1 and October 1 will be automatically added to the Wait List. They will be eligible to be assigned to Beginners if there are openings after June 1.
4. Children who turn 3 after October 1 will not be enrolled in the program.
Our Wait List will be organized in the order in which the paperwork is submitted. 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. Summer information will be ready in mid-March.
