Our Program

Bellevue Souths program is eclectic, combining contemporary and traditional methodology. Here, a child is given the freedom to develop at his/her own speed in a supportive, noncompetitive atmosphere. Informal teaching takes place as a child expresses interest in particular subjects. Our principal objective is to provide abundant opportunities which stimulate creativity, initiative, appreciation of beauty, excitement in learning and enjoyment in social activity. Each child selects materials and activities from the structure created by the teachers within the environment.

The environment includes an entire room for dramatic play which houses a kitchen area, puppet theater, climbing apparatus and dress-up clothing. The main room has areas for arts and crafts, manipulatives, water, sand, pets, blocks, language and math materials and computers. Science, nature and cooking are also integral parts of the program. Foreign language is introduced to our four year olds.

Music, utilizing piano, instruments and records, is part of the daily movement period. Stories are read throughout the day to small groups as well as the entire class. There is an exercise play period outdoors in one of the most exciting playgrounds in the city. Socialization, emotional and intellectual growth are primary goals.
