Welcome to Bernhardt Creative Beginnings - your premier provider of quality child care and development

Bernhardt Creative Beginnings strives to enrich the overall well being and development of children while focusing on education. Our children begin to learn and absorb at a young age, it starts with colors and shapes and progresses to numbers and alphabets. Our teachers prepare every child for school in a loving, nurturing manner. We provide a very safe, caring and nurturing environment for our children. Our teachers delight in talking to each child about his or her feelings and comfort them. They take pride in taking care of our little ones and make it their business to learn about their individual needs.

What is the Creative Curriculum?

It is an approach to teaching young children by being creative, using spontaneity, and the ability to see and use everyday opportunities to help children solve problems,explore new materials, and find answers to questions.  The teachers will begin using this approach in the infant rooms and continue throughout the center, using the children’s interests as a guide for their lesson planning and everyday activities.

The Creative Curriculum focuses on interest areas.These interest areas, or "learning centers" are designed to support children's development.

Our preschool teachers are trained in the Letterland Curriculum which introduces one letter to the children per week. Various activities, poems, songs, etc. accompany this curriculum which reinforce what the children are learning throughout the day! This is a fun, child-centered approach to learning letters and sounds that help prepare your child for kindergarten!

"I highly recommend BCB. The playgrounds are age-appropriate for each age group and very clean. My children have a very structured daily schedule and that is what they need. I have been amazed at everything my children have learned in 4 short months there. We love Bernhardt Creative Beginnings and so will you! I could go on and on. . ."
