This program is designed primarily for three different sets of children:
- Children whose birthday misses the VBCPS cutoff date of September 30, with those children turning 4 in October, November or December
- Children whose families have not decided when their child will start Kindergarten
- Parents who would prefer a three-day-per-week program versus a four-day-per-week program. These children will move on to Kindergarten after completion of the Bee-Tweens program
Classes are held three days per week, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This class has up to twelve children with two full-time teachers. Children must be potty trained to attend the Bee-Tween class.
The curriculum in this classroom is a hybrid of the 3’s and the PreK’s. It encompasses all of the objectives of the 3’s program, and the majority of the PreK program, but it is not as fast-paced as the PreK program. The program is flexible enough to address the needs of the younger children while firming up the basic skills of the older children.
Please see more details on the 3’s Class and PreK Class pages.
