Looking for a PreSchool Program?

Registration for the 2020-2021 Preschool at Liberty High School - FREE Program

This preschool program offers a unique educational experience for both preschoolers and high school students. The classroom environment has high school students interact, instruct, and observe the preschool students. This allows for one to one learning experiences for the preschoolers focusing on the individual child’s age and ability to stimulate social, cognitive, physical, and emotional development. This program and the students, high school and preschool, are overseen by Ms. Chemidlin the Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Liberty High School.

Preschool registration requires students to be 3 years old by October 2020, potty trained, have an up to date immunization record, and live in Bethlehem. This is a free program for the Bethlehem Community.

The anticipated start date will be September 22nd, 2020. The preschool program will be held Tuesday-Friday. Due to restrictions with COVID and enforcing the BASD safety plans including mandatory mask-wearing, for the safety of all students the first semester will be a virtual experience for the preschool students. This virtual experience will include Zoom meetings, videos, and more.

Contact Ms. Chemidlin at kchemidlin@basdschools.org to register or for any questions.
