Bethlehem Preschool accepts all children who wish to attend, and whom we can accommodate.
A Family Setting
Our preschool has a family setting, with three and four year olds sharing class time together. Children have opportunity to be the youngest and oldest in the classroom. This promotes co-operation, and the older children get a chance to practice leadership skills. Everyone is challenged at their own level of development. The family setting is recommended in some world renowned philosophies of education, i.e. Reggio Emilia and Montessori.
Children must be toilet trained before they begin attending our school.
Monday/Wednesday/Friday Morning Class (9:00 a.m.–11:30 a.m.) Three & four-year-olds
