ENROLLMENT FOR 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR 

Class size is a maximum of twelve children, ages 2 (by Sept. 15, 2020) to 4. Our small, multi-age group lends itself to a close-knit learning community. Applications are accepted and processed on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration given to a balanced distribution of age and character. Priority is given to BHA members, current students, and students on our waitlist and siblings of alumnae, in that order. 

We invite newly registered students to join us while preschool is in session with a parent/caregiver so that we can meet and interact. Visits are about 30 minutes, and they begin to familiarize students with preschool. We also begin to get to know your child.

There will be at least two other opportunities to visit preschool before school begins in September, our end-of-school-year Shabbat picnic and our Orientation Day at the end of summer break.

Is your child ready for preschool? Here is our criteria for participation in the BHA Preschool.

Is your child ALMOST 2? If your child is turning 2 between September 16th and November 30th, 2020 and you believe they may be ready for preschool, you may fill out an application for consideration. Depending on the make-up of our existing group, we will accept slightly younger students on select days.  Once we see the range of registrants who are ages 2-4 by September 2020, we will contact you about possible participation in the upcoming school year.

 

OUR CALENDAR

Enrollment is for the entire 2020-2021 academic school year, which runs from September 9th, 2020 through June 18th, 2021.

Our program runs Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am until 11:55 am. You may select 2-5 mornings per week, pending availability of space.

School will be closed on major Jewish and national holidays. School also will be closed when Beacon City School District calls for closure due to weather conditions.
