Bethlehem Childrens School Reviews
With the innovative educational programs, caring teachers, and small class sizes at BCS, children get not only individualized attention, but also individualized learning. They learn at their own pace, with education methods that are both innovative and earth-centric... Teaching every child to not only love and respect his or her environment, but also to thrive in it. My son is in 1st grade at BCS and loves it.
We homeschool our daughter, and are just thrilled with the partners-in-education program offered at BCS. My daughter loves coming (and oftentimes doesn't want to leave when I come to pick her up!). The teachers are patient and supportive. Academics are presented in a way that's fun and child-centered. I love the environmental/community focus, and feel like my child has found a truly special place.
The school has grown to a wonderful 42 students. We now have an exciting program involving home school families. The environment fosters independent thinking, cooperation, environmental conscience, and sustainable learning. My children love it so much, they never want to leave.
