Bellingham Public Schools offers an inclusive preschool program for 3-to-5 year old Bellingham residents.
Currently, the BECP operates at 2 preschool sites. One is at the Stallbrook Elementary and the other is at the DiPietro Elementary School. Students are placed according to their home address or by available openings. Both sites offer the same curriculum and share staff.
The Bellingham Early Childhood Program recognizes that parents are the first teachers of their children. We work with families of children ages three through six, forming a partnership for quality education and care. Our staff values the uniqueness of each child, and is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, positive environment. Focusing on a balance of activities appropriate for young children, the curriculum gives equal regard to all areas of development: cognitive, social, emotional, aesthetic, and physical.
