Program Philosophy

BGCGG Early Childhood Program views young children as unique individuals who are filled with a sense of wonder and a love of learning. Our educators work collaboratively with families to provide rich and engaging learning experiences in a safe, nurturing environment to help children reach their full potential.


Program Descriptions

Infant/Toddler Program
The Toddler Program offers a loving, caring, and nurturing environment for children to feel safe and secure in a small group setting. Supported by staff, children learn and discover each day through their own exploration with learning activities. Our staff build strong partnerships with families to support the individual child’s optimal development.

Preschool Program
Each child has opportunities to create and explore the environment, learn problem solving, build personal & social interaction skills, and understand concepts through hands-on activities. Children develop positive self-concepts through both child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. Through partnerships with families, staff support the individual child to develop the foundations of learning for success in school.
