The Early Childhood Department
The Early Childhood Department consists of programs for ones, twos, threes, and fours ones, twos, threes, and fours/Junior Kindergarten/VPK age students. The program offers children the opportunity to succeed in a nurturing, supportive environment. Our Early Childhood Department is in session for 222 days.
Upon entering a classroom, one immediately notices the rapport between teachers and students, the care and concern for each student, and the supportive atmosphere of fun and enjoyment as the children learn and play together. The children display eagerness to learn and happiness in their achievements. They participate in all activities willingly, and are never pressured.
All Early Childhood students, ages 2 to 4, must be toilet trained. All students are accepted on a probationary basis. A copy of the child’s birth certificate, health form, and proof of immunization, as well as registration fees, must accompany the registration application.
|BEACON HILL HEALTHY SNACK POLICY
FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD DEPARTMENT
At Beacon Hill, we are concerned with every aspect of a child’s growth and
development. We believe that when learning and healthy habits are
ingrained at a young age, children will have a strong foundation for a lifetime
of health and achievement.
To that end, we have developed a new snack policy that will be
enforced for all children in Jewels, Gems, Pre-School, and Jr.
Kindergarten. All snacks must come from the approved list. If a child
brings in a snack that is not on the list, it will be put into their backpacks to
bring back home. Children will only be given the healthy snacks that are on
the approved list. Low-fat milk is provided during lunch for students who are
on the Beacon Hill lunch program, and all students regularly drink water
throughout the school day.
Also, please remember that foods such as chips, pastries, doughnuts,
cookies, candy, and sweetened drinks are acceptable as occasional treats,
such as birthday and holiday celebrations, but should not be considered as
snack foods for young children.
Please see other side of page for approved snack list.
