For the last 20 years BH-BL's Family & Consumer Sciences Department has operated a preschool, Kids Korner, in the spring at the high school.
Kids Korner is a learning lab planned and implemented--under the direction of Child Psychology & Development teacher and SCCC adjunct instructor Danielle Manning--by students in grades 11 and 12 who are enrolled in the school's college-level Child Psychology & Development classes. The students have taken the prerequisite Child Studies course 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 toilet 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 per week (alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays) from February 24 to May 18 from 10 a.m. until noon.
BH-BL's Kids Korner program offers a valuable experience for both the high school students and the preschoolers. For the last several years, there have been students in the Child Psychology & Development course who attended Kids Korner as preschoolers!
The maximum number of preschoolers the program can accommodate is 12. Therefore,if you are interested in enrolling your child for this program please contact Danielle Manning no later than Friday, February 12, 2016. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 399-9141, ext. 83209
