Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Schools, in conjunction with the Greene County Educational Service Center, operates our preschool program. The program is open to all children, ages 3-5, who are residents of the school district. Children who have developmental delays are also accepted with free therapy services provided to children who qualify.
The preschool program is a mandated state licensed program which follows criteria developed by the state. Children learn best through meaningful play; therefore, a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum is followed along with state preschool standards to foster intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. An integrated program allows children who have many types of strengths and needs, to model various skills for each other, to interact with a variety of children and to establish friendships with one another. The program is designed to meet the individual needs of all students.
The preschool class meets Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays for approximately 2 1/2 hours, morning or afternoon. There are no classes on Wednesday. This allows the staff to conduct preschool screenings, assessments, Individualized Educational Programs (IEP) meetings, team meetings, program planning/development, home visits, parent conferences, and staff development activities. The program follows the same calendar schedule as all other programs operated by the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek School District unless otherwise determined by administration.
