Welcome to BEEP, Bayfield's non-profit preschool. We provide a high quality learning environment for young children and their families.
Bayfield Early Education Programs has three classrooms of three to five year olds who attend school on a full-day schedule and one classroom which meets half -days, Monday/Wednesday mornings, and full day Tuesday/Thursdays.
Our classes begin the day at 8:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. The half-day class run from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. BEEP operates an afterschool program for the benefit of working parents. Those hours are 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Bus transportation is provided by the Bayfield School District for kindergarten and first grade students. Summer Camps for preschool age children are held during June and July.
Two fully qualified early childhood professionals teach a maximum of 15 children in each classroom. The teachers use aides where needed.
The curriculum includes modified Montessori, Creative Curriculum, Zoo-Phonics, and other appropriate learning modalities. Teachers regularly assess students, and provide parents with information about their child's progress. The preschool also assesses children with special needs and those receiving Colorado Preschool Program care, and records those assessments with the Colorado Department of Education.
As a non-profit organization, we rely on tuition payments and fundraisers in order to offer our preschool curriculum. Please take the time to make a tax deductible donation! Call, mail, or email and we will gladly assist you. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated.
Application Day for next school year is Friday, April 25th. Please bring your completed application, with the $45 registration fee, on this day. Doors are open beginning at 7:30 a.m.
