It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.
~Robert G. Ingersoll
We are a non-profit organization that fundraises to subsidize the actual cost of our services. Our tuition is well below market value for the quality of services we provide. We believe that every child and family deserves the best early childhood education available so we are dedicated to making sure our prices stay at market rate and our fundraising covers the rest.
Bal Swan Children’s Center has many programs to choose from and a summary follows. However for a detailed list please click on the following link Bal Swan Program Description.
Bal Swan has children’s programs that begin at 24 months through Kindergarten. Children’s classes are determined by their age on Oct 1 and children stay in the same class for an entire year. This helps build a classroom community and aids in developing strong friendships and positive relationships with teachers. Bal Swan has toddler, preschool, pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten programs. Children that are 3.5 and younger attend our toddler or preschool programs that can be 2 to 3 hours a day in the AM or PM and 2 to 3 days a week. Our children that are 3.5 and older have many more options in our pre-Kindergarten programs. Pre-Kindergarten programs can be 3, 4, 5, 7.5, and up to 8.5 hours a day. Our pre-Kindergarteners can attend 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Our Kindergarten is 5 days a week, AM, PM or full day.
During the summer, we offer school-age programs for children 6 to 12 years of age, click here for more details Bal Swan Summer Programs Description.
