Fall 2019 - Spring 2020 Class Schedule and Fees

*Class placement is based on your child's age as of August 31st.

 

**Total Annual Cost for one child includes the non-refundable registration fee, non-refundable supply fee, fundraising contribution, and BHCP monthly tuition for 9 months. It excludes a $50 cleaning fee per cleaning night (if 2 cleaning nights are not attended during the school year) and optional art bag. 

The Peeps Class is designed for the parent and baby to attend class one morning each week for one hour and fifteen minutes. The class will consist of morning circle, songs and music, dance, baby sign language, baby massage, and other activities that are designed to engage the parent and baby in fun, educational, and stimulating activities. Parents will also participate in discussions with the Parent Educator regarding various topics of interest related to infant care and development.

 

 

The Sparrows Class meets twice per week for socialization, enrichment and fun! Our morning begins with a short circle time of singing, rhymes, movement and instruments.  Free exploration follows with various stations including art, sensory table, play dough, dress up, block building, easel and snack.  On most days we play outside for large motor development. At these ages, children need ample time to explore and discover the world around them. We honor that need and create a nurturing environment for them to thrive.

The Owls Class offers daily thematic activities that encourage play and learning in a safe environment. Children learn best through play and our day is centered around fun activities that the children learn from (even though they don't know they're learning!). We start each day with a circle time that includes reading a book, singing songs and talking about the activity choices for the day. The children are then free to explore the activity centers which include art, free choice design art, playdough, writing, puzzles, drama, blocks, snack and games. During this time, the children learn to interact with others in a positive environment and learn what it means to work together. Then it's time to head outside to excercise our bodies with swings, sandbox and sensory garden. We then end our day with more music and goodbyes until next time.

 

We also attend field trips throughout the year including:

-pet store
-train trip
-musical theater

 

The Owls is a wonderful introduction into preschooler's independence while still having adult figures there to guide them. See a sample Owls schedule.

The Eagles Class (Pre-K) allows time for both child-directed and teacher-directed activities. The experience our students gain in both social and academic skills facilitates their smooth transition to kindergarten. Our students are given the chance to help in the classroom by being assigned a new "job" daily, such as line leader, song chooser, or calendar helper.

 

A typical day in the Eagles class would include the following:

 

Circle Time: Learn about the activities for the day and introduce the current theme in the classroom
Free Choice: Explore the thematic stations within our three rooms
Outside Play: Play in the sandbox, play structure or swings, or participate in the weekly bike day
Closing Circle: Finish up with some music and dancing

 

Learning outside the classroom is also a part of the Eagles curriculum, which includes fun and educational field trips. Some field trips that we've attended include:
-fire station
-airport
-hardware store
-grocery store
-dentist
-children's plays
-farm

 

See a sample Eagles schedule.

The Explorers Group allows extended time for participating members of the Eagles class to continue classroom activities and take learning to a deeper level.  This extra time beyond the regular Eagles class schedule offers additional social time at the lunch table as well as a creative outlet with focused STEAM activities and process art.  10 Eagles students will stay after regular class time for this additional hour as part of the Explorers class.  The Explorers Group will meet from October through April.
