I highly recommend Bethel especially parents with preschoolers. If you want your child to have good educational and good faith foundation, bring them to Bethel. If you are paying for babysitting before and after school, then just pick Bethel. All your money is worth it. To see your child learn how

As a single working mom raising 3 kids, I am pleased and very grateful that my children are sheltered, cared for, and taught in a good environment each day 12 hours a day Monday to Friday. Bethel provides child care from 6am till school starts and from 3:30 pm till 6pm. As a parent who commutes to work, this schedule is great. The staffs during day care also encourages the children to do their homework and assist them when needed help. The staffs and teachers work with each child and make sure each child learns. "No kid left behind". They are flexible and very strategic with their curriculum. They are very knowledgeable and the children learn structure, discipline, respect, and order. They also learn leadership skills, mentoring skills, accountability, integrity, and be good role models for the younger kids. Good quality. Read less

The school has excellent curriculum and very experienced and well respected teachers.

BCS means: Excellent School, Superb Staff, and Outstanding Teachers. Read less

My daughter just spent the last two years attending preschool here and I am loving it. All of the staff is super friendly.

The preschool/kindergarten program is wonderful and the staff seems to know exactly what's going on with each kid. I'm extremely happy with my choice in sending her to a private school. Well worth my money as she's getting the education I'm paying for. Her teachers all seem to care about what is going on with each child and the principal is always caught wondering around checking in on the different classes and events. He's always right there shaking hands and greeting you with a smiling friendly face. I have met other parents there during different events and I really have nothing bad to say about this school; I love it! Read less

We are glad to have made the decision to attend Bethel three years ago, are proud Bethel parents, and look forward to my daughter's attendance next year, as a preschooler. Also noteworthy and appreciated is the extensive, allowable parent involvement. I am able to participate, recommend, and inquiry as often as I like and that is appreciated--a BIG difference from public school experience where you can barely walk on the campus. Bethel is worth a visit... Read less
