BHPCNS Parent Testimonials

"All three of my children went to Bradley Hills. I cannot thank the faculty and staff enough for their professionalism and genuine love of caring for young children. BH engages in very effective combination of play and structured teaching to educate children. The results I have seen speak for themselves. The kids I have known, including my own, are happy, consistently excited to learn, and well prepared for kindergarten. I am impressed particularly with BH's commitment to improving and evolving year after year. I would recommend BH without hesitation." -Parent of a 5 year old and 3 graduates

Noteworthy Notes:

While preschool cannot be replicated with an online program, the staff of BHPCNS is working hard to provide families with meaningful online content and activities in which to engage while school is closed.  Check out our Resources Tab for a wide variety of links; our Calendar Tab for our Weekly Themed Activity Packets; and our YouTube channel where you'll find teachers reading, chicks hatching, yogis yoga'ing and more!  

​Summer Camp!

Due to the continuing safeguards put in place to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our health care systems, BHPCNS' summer camp has been cancelled.  Payments will be refunded, carried over into the new school year as a credit or accepted as a donation to the school, at each family's discretion.  We hope to go into orbit next summer!
