The Beatrice Community Preschool is a partnership combining the resources of Blue Valley Community Action/Head Start and Beatrice Public Schools into one high-quality program of early childhood services.
We offer developmentally appropriate learning and play opportunities for all preschool children (age 3 & 4) regardless of ability or income.
The Beatrice Community Preschool program organizes classroom activities around Creative Curriculum, a developmental model that includes a three-year curriculum cycle of teaching units, including language, fine motor and cognitive skills, literacy, music & movement, and snack activities developed to coordinate with unit topics. Social and communication skills are facilitated through play and teacher-directed activities.
Readiness activities for students transitioning to a school-age program the next school year include particular emphasis on beginning math, letter recognition and sound/letter correspondence, writing and fine motor skills. Staff members meet together on a weekly basis to plan and coordinate the curriculum across each classroom setting.
