For the last 18 years the BH-BL Family & Consumer Sciences Department has operated a preschool--Kids Korner--each spring at the high school.
Kids Korner is a learning lab planned and implemented, under the teacher's direction, by the 12th-grade students enrolled in the college-level Child Psychology & Development classes. These students have taken the prerequisite course, Child Studies, and are interested in attending college next year to pursue careers working with children. These include majoring in areas such as early childhood education, elementary/special education, psychology and pre-med to name a few.
Kids Korner is designed for four-year-old children who are bathroom trained and ready to experience a supportive and enriching preschool environment. The high school students work very closely with the preschoolers and develop a wonderful relationship with them.
The preschool operates one day a week (alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays) from March 19 through May 28 from 10 a.m. to noon.
The Kids Korner program offers a valuable experience for both the high school students and the preschoolers. In fact, the past several years, some of the students who are enrolled in the Child Psychology & Development course also attended Kids Korner as preschoolers!
The maximum number of preschoolers that we can accommodate is 12. Therefore, if you are interested or would like additional information, please email the instructor Danielle Manning at firstname.lastname@example.org with Kids Korner in the subject line by Friday February 14.
