About Preschool 2021-22 Enrollment

ENROLLMENT FOR 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR 

Our small, multi-age group lends itself to a close-knit learning community. Class size is 12-13 children, ages 2 (by Sept. 1, 2021) to 4 (turning 5 after July 1, 2022), with three teachers. Applications are accepted and processed on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration given to a balanced distribution of age, development, and personal needs. Priority is given to current students. Next, BHA members get priority. After that, siblings of alumnae are invited to enroll, followed by students on our waiting list.

We ask parents who are enrolling a child who is new to BHA Preschool to review and complete the Criteria for Participation checklist for their child upon registration. Then we will make a time to talk by phone and schedule visit for you and your child. This visit is an opportunity for teachers and an incoming student to grow familiar with one another. 

There are usually at least two opportunities for incoming students 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.

 

OUR CALENDAR

Enrollment takes place for each trimester, fall, winter and spring, with the expectation that families plan to participate for the full school year. 

Our program runs Tuesdays through Fridays from 9:00 am until 11:55 am. All students are enrolled for all four days of the week. 

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.  We have breaks through the school year around Thanksgiving, the week between Christmas to New Year's Day, the week of President's Day, and the week of Passover.

Fall Trimester: Sept. 9-Nov. 23, 2021

Winter Trimester: Nov. 30, 2021-March 11, 2022

Spring Trimester: March 15, 2022-June 17, 2022

 

TUITION (2021-2022 School Year)

Upon submission of the registration form and payment of a $400 non-refundable deposit you are reserving a place for your child at BHA Preschool with the intention to participate for the full 2021-2022 school year.  You will be asked to enroll and pay tuition for each trimester, Fall, Winter and Spring.
