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 is once again in full operation. Due to COVID19, our class sizes were limited but have now returned to full size. Our students are adhering to the mask mandates and sanitizing protocols are in place. Preschoolers are adjusting to our “new normal” and are learning and growing every day. We are thankful to all our families for trusting us with your children and are looking forward to getting back the “real normal” soon. There are a few spots still available for 4 year old's in the 2021-2022 school year. Please call the preschool office at 508-966-2512 for availability.3 year old classes are currently full, please call the preschool office if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

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.
