The BRJCC Preschool is a program designed to develop the social, emotional, physical and intellectual well-being of each child. We value each child for their individuality, uniqueness, and developmental level.

The classrooms are designed to allow children to make choices, explore, and discover in a safe, nurturing learning environment. Each child?s self-concept and feeling of self-worth is enhanced by helping children to develop their own interests and skills. application form
