What’s Changing

For the 2022-2023 school year and going forward, Beverley Hills Church Preschool made some changes. We:

  • Expanded the school day to 4 hours
  • Expanded classes for our oldest preschoolers to 5 days a week
  • Added professionally-lead extended day programming for an additional fee
  • Decreased parent volunteer hours

These changes have been made in response to families’ desire for more programming and more sustainable service requirements. Enrollment fees increased compared to the 2021-2022 school year to cover the additional learning hours.

We remain committed to our principles and philosophy. Our children will continue to learn in a materials-rich environment with experienced teachers who excel in the Reggio Emilia Approach to education. Our parents will still be actively involved in the classrooms and school operations, creating robust community and camaraderie. These things are the bedrock of our community.
