"We are a child's place, working at a child's pace."
At Bethlehem we see each child as a unique individual who develops at his/her own pace. We base our philosophy on Montessori principles and provide a developmentally appropriate environment which allows each child to reach his/her full potential physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually.
We are dedicated to "following and nurturing the whole child" by:
Providing a calm, secure environment that supports children's emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development.
Promoting a first sense of community in an atmosphere of kindness and respect for self, others, and the environment.
Utilizing a curriculum which allows children to become actively engaged in their learning.
Offering developmentally appropriate hands-on materials and activities that are relevant to a child's needs and interests "Children learn best by doing."
Laying the building blocks for a solid foundation of lifelong learning.
