Preschool

Our Program

Our preschool teaching philosophy is founded on research-based early childhood literature. BACC follows the California State Standards through the Preschool Learning Foundation guidelines and the Creative Curriculum for Preschoolers.  Our framework focuses on children’s physical development and health; social-emotional development; language development; cognitive development; and perceptual and motor development.

We believe that embedded instruction through a variety of hands-on materials allows for maximum opportunities for child development through self-exploration and discovery. We aim to prepare children for kindergarten by exposing them to a wide array of engaging activities.

Our preschool educational program uses a child-centered curriculum, which focuses on strengthening early child development and school-readiness to promote children's success in school and life.  Our preschool curriculum promotes a multi-modal approach to learning. 

Our preschool curriculum includes, but is not limited to, listening skill development; math, science, and literacy skill development; culture and diversity appreciation; art, music and movement skill development; team-building activities, and self-help skill development.

Our Brier/Glankler preschool program works in close collaboration with the Glankler Early Learning Center. We provide inclusion opportunity for students with special needs that are enrolled at Glankler . We believe that embedded instruction through a variety of hands-on materials allows for maximum opportunities for child development through self-exploration and discovery.

Our inclusion programming is designed to promote the physical, intellectual, and social-emotional development of each child and follows current literature and best practices.

Teachers and support staff from the Glankler Early Learning Center regularly collaborate with our staff around inclusion programming and on individual students' needs.

 Two Glankler para-educators also work at our facility to assist students with special needs in the after school program. These para-educators work to encourage children’s language development, socialization and pre-readiness growth and help in adapting and modifying the environment as needed.

  Our preschool program at Steven Millard Elementary is a small program, with fewer than 10 children enrolled each year, on average. This enables teachers to provide one-on-one and small group instruction.

Throughout the day, we have a variety of different organized activities and projects in alignment with our monthly and weekly themes. These activities include, but are not limited to the following:

Arts and crafts

Cooking

Small group work time

Outdoor exploration

Gardening

Math and science activities

Literacy

Pre-academic readiness

Table activities

Snack time/lunch
