Benefits of 3-K for All
BCCS will have two 3K classes at the start of the 2018-19 school year.
Free, full-day, high-quality 3-K for All programs provide a unique opportunity for learning that will prepare your child for future success in school and in life. 85 percent of brain growth in children occurs by the age of five. Participating in 3-K for All and Pre-K for All programs provides your child with experiences that lay an important foundation for future learning. Research shows that 2 years of high-quality preschool provides children with stronger math, reading, language and social-emotional skills going into elementary school.
3-K for All classrooms are full of inquiry, discovery, learning and joy. Teaching staff support and encourage your child to explore the classroom, learn daily classroom routines and express feelings and ideas in a safe environment. 3-K for All children are active learners who develop language and knowledge of the world through positive interactions with adults and each other, and through hands-on learning and play. Your child will have daily opportunities to build on his or her current knowledge by engaging with materials and concepts in learning centers such as blocks/construction, science/discovery, art and dramatic play. Our programs welcome the opportunity to partner with you and your family to ensure that your child has a successful year in 3-K.
