The purpose of Bethlehem Community Preschool & Child Care is to be in partnership with the home, providing care and early education for children ages 6 weeks-13 yrs. old, with a warm, loving environment and developmentally appropriate experiences that promotes social, emotional, creative, intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth. The Center opened in 1996 serving preschool students and one room of childcare out of the basement at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. In August 2007 the center grew too large and moved to our current location. We have 6 classrooms and are serving ages 6 weeks to 13 years old. We are rated 3 stars through the Youngster Quality Rating Scale and we are licensed by Department of Children and Families to serve 74 children.
The Center is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM, year round, with closures throughout the year due to holidays. Parents/legal guardians are welcomed visitors at all times unless a court order states otherwise. We believe that you are your child’s first and most important teacher and encourage open communication. We at Bethlehem also value your opinion and suggestions at any time. Please consider or joining us on field trips or any other time that may fit your schedule.
The BCPCC staff is committed to a program that is flexible enough to meet the needs of our families. Families contract for the schedule that best meet their needs.
