MISSION STATEMENT
 
       The Beverly Hills Baptist Church Weekday Early Education Program is a Christian Ministry to preschoolers, toddlers, infants, and their families. Our primary purpose is to provide developmentally appropriate care and opportunities for young children to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and as persons created by God. We do so by providing planned developmental and learning experiences, fostering a Christian atmosphere of love and acceptance, and modeling Christian behavior. 
 
GOALS:

 

  • Lay a distinctively Christian foundation for each child by nurturing such qualities  as love, trust, and being valued by God.
     
  • Provide a sound and appropriate beginning in basic teachings of Christian faith consistent with the beliefs of Beverly Hills Baptist Church. (Including God, Jesus, Bible, Natural World, Self, Others, Family, and Church).
     
  • Prepare the preschool child for entry into Kindergarten through development of reading readiness, writing, (eye-hand coordination), and math (number recognition, sorting, sequencing, etc…).
     
  • Aid in school readiness through development of classroom cooperation, daily routine, self-help skills, sharing ideas, accepting non-parental authority figures, and respecting the rights of others.
 
 
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
 
 The Weekday Early Education (WEE) Program is operated as a non-profit ministry of Beverly Hills Baptist Church according to the standards established by the church and is supported primarily by the registration and tuition fees from enrolled children. WEE has two components. A preschool program is available for two, three and four year olds. A Mother’s Morning Out is provided for babies and toddlers. Both components are offered Monday – Friday from 9 am – 1 pm during the school year. Our program follows the Buncombe County school schedule (including Holidays and snow days.)
 
REGISTRATION
 
       A non-refundable registration fee of $50 is charged for all age groups and must be paid before a child is considered enrolled. All forms required by the preschool must be filled out annually for our records. The health form needs to be filled out and signed by your child’s physician. A copy of a current shot record will be accepted until your physician can fill out the health form.
 
PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING
 
 We believe that preschoolers learn through their play and that play is their work. Preschoolers learn through activities involving books, blocks, nature materials, creative materials, pictures, home living centers and music. All children are encouraged to express themselves, investigate, and learn through:
 
                                       ·       Group Living

TUITION
 
           The WEE program follows the Buncombe County School Systems calendar year. Our tuition is an annual fee based on a 180 day schedule payable in 9 equal payments. Payment is due by the first of the month. Checks should be made to: WEE. Reminders will be sent on the tenth day of the month, and a late fee of $10.00 will be charged to accounts not paid by the fifteenth day of the month. Financial arrangements that may become necessary because of inability to pay must be made by the director under the ruling of the Weekday Early Education Committee of Beverly Hills Baptist Church. If this need should occur, please contact the director so that a program of payment can be worked out. If the account is delinquent for more than one month your child will not be allowed to return to preschool until the full balance is paid or payment arrangements are made.
 
We are regretful that allowances cannot be made for illness or bad weather, but we hire staff based on a regular enrollment. Prior notice of withdrawal of a child from the program is required. If no notice is given you will be responsible for payment. No refunds are given for tuition if a child is withdrawn after the first of the month.
