Philosophy

 
Safe, Secure, and Loving Environment
As parents ourselves, we understand that a safe, secure and loving environment is the most important criteria for selecting a childcare center or preschool. Our new facility incorporates all the latest safety and security features:
  • Biometric Finger Print Recognition System for Building Entry & Check In/Check Out
  • 16 Security Cameras – Covering All Classrooms, Playgrounds, and Entrances
  • 2 Exit Doors In Every Classroom
  • Sprinkler System Throughout Entire Building
  • All Teachers and Staff Trained in CPR & First Aid


Make Learning Fun
Research has shown that children’s attention spans are greater and learning is accelerated when they have fun in the process. We believe that the most uplifting sound on earth is the sound of children laughing and singing. Therefore, we have enhanced our curriculum with songs and lyrics – not just in music class, but in all classes. Our comprehensive preschool curriculum consists of Math, Science, Phonics, Computers, Art, Spanish, and Music – all included in the tuition with no extra fees. We have developed a full day Kindergarten program that we are ready to implement after we have completed an evaluation to determine if there is sufficient demand for the program. Our preschool curriculum overlaps with many of the Kindergarten courses and our preschool graduates will be fully prepared to handle any Kindergarten assignment.

Character Development
We are one of the few preschools in the state of Missouri to teach the 6 pillars of Character Counts® - Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. We also teach sharing, manners and etiquette. Our recognition and rewards program reinforces character development by recognizing each time a child does the right thing and providing a reward (a star under their name on the Character Counts chart) and an acknowledgement to the parents.







Nutrition and Exercise
At Beth Academy we recognize that nutrition and exercise are very important for the physical development of a child. Our meal plans are all designed to the children’s nutrition guidelines from the USDA’s Food Pyramid. We serve a hot breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack to all students – included in the tuition with no extra fees. Play 60 is practiced at Beth Academy. Our schedule provides for an hour of exercise on the playgrounds every day, weather permitting. If our 4 age specific playgrounds and 720 square foot covered playground are not useable due to bad weather, our 1000 square foot activity room is used.

Your Childs Home Away From Home
We realize the difficulty of leaving your child anywhere and we strive to make every child feel that we are part of their extended family. We sincerely believe that any parent will be proud to call Beth Academy their Child’s Home Away From Home.
