The Burke Street Early Learning Center is a full-day program offering a safe, nurturing environment for children between the ages of 3-5 years old.
Weekly tuition for full time is $185/week and part time is $100/week. Tuition is payable to Girls Incorporated of New Hampshire. A registration fee is due when registering, equal to one week’s tuition. This deposit pays for the 1st week of school. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. The preschool program is co-ed and children must be 3 to 5 years old by August 31st.
Our goals for the children we care for include
building upon critical thinking, problem solving, and self-regulation skills.
Children learn best through active learning experiences!
Children need to be met where they are in their development. We nurture the whole child and plan activities that develop physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and language skills.
Family involvement is very important to a child’s well being. We believe the parent is the child’s first teacher and we work alongside families to build cultural consistency.
Children require a safe, healthy environment with professionals. Our program is licensed and our staff is teacher certified.
Since BSELC follows principles of developmentally appropriate practice, our curriculum is based on what we know about how children learn. We know that children learn through play based experiences using a wide variety of materials. Therefore, we encourage children to investigate their environment, whether it is the natural world of the outdoors, or intentionally planned activities designed by our teachers.
Our staff uses an inquiry-based method when teaching. This means that instead of focusing on a “right or wrong” answer, we encourage children to ask questions such as “why and how?” This approach to teaching helps children learn problem solving skills and allow the teacher and child to work together in the classroom, rather than the teacher being the distributer of information and the child being a receiver of information.
