Thank you for considering Before the Bell Preschool for your childcare needs! We understand that choosing the right daycare center is one of the most important decisions a parent has to make. Our parents have a peace of mind knowing their child is in a safe, fun, learning environment.


It is imperative that parents feel completely comfortable when enrolling their child in daycare, this is why we work closely with each family to provide a nurturing and safe place for your child. While here, your child will receive attentive care in a small group setting, receive lots of love and have fun while learning new things every day. Although we have a daily schedule our days are flexible to meet the needs of the children first. We go outside when weather permits and do alternative activities indoors as well.


Take a look at our classrooms! This is where your child will have fun as they learn through playing in our carefully designed stations. We incorporate Montessori, Reggio, and Play Base philosophies throughout our program and curriculum.


The preschool years are a time of great creativity and social growth. We plan a day full of engaging experiences that optimize these and all other areas of development. Your preschooler will encounter fun experiences to stimulate his curiosity and mind. Our classroom spaces are designed for the preschooler ready to take on the world. Children learn easily and naturally through involvement and daily interactions with people, activities and their environment. Before the Bell Preschool and Daycare Center allow children to be children, exploring the world, developing in an unhurried way, and learning for the joy of learning.
