Hello, welcome to the Billings Career Center Preschool website. 



Mission:

The Career Center Early Childhood Education's mission is to establish a safe and healthy learning environment appreciating early childhood as a unique and valuable stage of development. The environment will provide young children with the means to develop physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively with emphasis on buliding self-reliance skills.

Philosophy:

The Career Center Early Childhood Education's preschool will provide an environment for the preschool children conducive to becoming a life long learner. Through positive guidance, all children will find themselves successful and accepted as individuals that learn collaboratively in a community. This preschool will be committed to appreciating and supporting the close ties between the child and family, recognizing that children are the best understood in the context of family, culture, and society.

Hours:

Our preschool is 3 days a week; Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday.  Our hours are 8:05 to 10:30 in the morning and 12:05 to 2:30 in the afternoon. Please do not bring children early, as the student teachers need time to prepare. It is equally important to be prompt when picking up your children at the close of the day, as the student teachers need time to get to their next class. The child will be brought to your car-- if you are late your child will be brought back into the classroom. To help us put the children into the cars quickly and efficiently; you will be provided with a large name card, which needs to be held up so we can see it clearly from the sidewalk. This is especially important during bad weather days.

If someone other than yourself will be picking up your child you must inform us in writing. A telephone message about a driving change will not be accepted. Also inform this new driver that they will be asked to present an ID card before they will be allowed to take your child. If your child is ill or will not be attending preschool please be sure to call us at 281-5362 within fifteen minutes of when your child was scheduled to arrive so that we will not be left waiting to begin our day.

Ages:

Your child must be 3 to 5 years of age and must be toilet trained to attend our preschool.
