Preschool / Pre-K Program

To ensure we are providing a balanced curriculum, the Preschool/Pre-K classrooms will be following The Creative Curriculum and BBCDC Curriculum with learning groups in the afternoon. The learning groups are based on age, ability and language skills.  It is our job to prepare the students for Kindergarten and give them the skills needed to be successful in school.  At BBCDC we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.  With our supplemental curriculum,  our children have the opportunities for gifted and classical school placement as well as preparation for Selective Enrollment testing.  With the Creative Curriculum and BBCDC’s Preschool/PreK Curriculum; all areas of development and learning are met and include:

 

  • Social-Emotional Development

  • Physical Development

  • Language Development

  • Cognitive Development

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Science and Technology

  • Social Studies

  • The Arts

  • English Language Acquisition

 

Our goal at BBCDC is to prepare children for the next grade level so they transition smoothly into Kindergarten at their new school; traditional or gifted.


In addition to our Infant/Toddler Program, BBCDC provides Early Head Start services with our partnership with Easterseals Metropolitan Chicago.  Head Start/Early Head Start is an early learning program nationally recognized for high quality, family-centered education for children ages 0 to 5 years.   This partnership provides services and resources to qualifying families for free.  For more information about Early Head Start go to http://www.easterseals.com/chicago/our-programs/childrens-services/HS-EHS.html.
