Our mission is to partner with the family to introduce God's plan for their child and inspire a love of learning. We seek to teach Jesus' love for the children, encouraging his values and character in their lives. We believe that each child is a child of God and has a right to develop to his or her fullest potential.
We strive to create a program that will provide examples of the highest qualities of the Christian faith, assist parents in these crucial years of child rearing, and provide children the very best of early childhood education in order to meet all needs of the developing child.
We commit ourselves to providing a program which brings together the best we know about the education of young children and our highest understanding of the Christian faith.
Our child-centered curriculum offers age appropriate, "hands-on" experiences in a loving and caring Christian atmosphere. Each age group has its own set of learning skills and objectives and our individualized instruction allows children to mature and develop in their own time frame with positive, success oriented learning activities.
Our desire is to meet all needs of the developing child - intellectual, social and emotional, physical, and spiritual.
Founded in 1969, Bethesda enjoys an excellent reputation among parents and educators as a superior school for children ages two through five.
Our curriculum is based on the ideas of Maria Montessori and Jean Piaget, among others, and focuses on the way children learn most effectively-through play.
