Preschool Program

Available in Half Day, School Day & Extended Day

Research has shown that a high quality preschool program boosts the kinds of learning, social and thinking skills needed for later achievement. Bellevue School District preschool programs use the OWL (Opening the World of Learning) curriculum which focuses on those skills needed by children to become successful readers. The preschools offer flexible options and are conveniently located at many elementary schools. School day preschool classes are offered 6.5 hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and half-day on Wednesday. Children may attend a half-day preschool for 3 hours. For families needing additional hours, extended day programs are available from 6:30am – 6:00pm. No matter which you choose, the district preschool will prepare your child for success as a kindergartner in the Bellevue School District.

Early Extended Day Preschool

The program is designed for older two year olds and young three year olds. It is ideal for two year olds who are ready for a longer circle time and more focused activities. It is also ideal for those three year olds who are not quite ready for a more structured learning environment. Throughout the day, children will have many opportunities to learn about friendship, develop language and beginning literacy skills and engage in creative experiences. All activities are designed to enable children to become more confident and independent and enjoy learning while having fun.
