Preschool  and
Kids day out

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

In 1969 school for toddlers was vastly different than it is today. Miniature students might expect to stay for but a couple of hours in their simple classrooms, learn basic colors and shapes, make new friends, laugh, sing and play. Although times have changed, and our little friends might stay a bit longer, life more than 50 years later at Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out remains as pure and play-based as it once was in 1969, with a newly inspired mission of helping children, faith and families grow. Please watch the video below to find more information about our wonderful school.

Quick Facts 

Preschool
Bonhomme’s preschool program has been in existence since 1969. We believe that children learn best through play and hands-on experiences. Our curriculum is carefully structured so children can choose activities that will help them grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically, and spiritually, with the goal of providing a healthy balance between child-centered and teacher-directed activities. Our Preschool children also experience Music/Bible Time, Physical Education, and Spanish weekly, and Art Appreciation monthly. We have classes for two-year-olds through pre-kindergarten, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Each classroom is staffed by degreed and experienced teachers. The school year runs September through May.

Kids Day Out 
Our Kids Day Out (KDO) classrooms are staffed by experienced caregivers and are equipped with developmentally appropriate materials. The daily schedule is relaxed but follows a routine that helps children feel safe and secure at school. KDO is offered daily, 9 a.m.–3 p.m. September through May. Children (ages six months to two years old) may be enrolled one or multiple days.

Summer Play
Bonhomme Preschool and KDO Summer Play provides an opportunity for children (one-year-olds through those entering kindergarten) to explore fun topics in a learn-through-play setting. A typical day might include books and stories, creative art projects, music and movement, and interactive learning experiences. We offer six different sessions in June and July, held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.  Summer Play registration form click here

Extended Day
Many of our Preschool students enjoy having lunch together and spending time with their school friends in a more relaxed setting. Extended day is available every day, Monday through Friday, 12–3 p.m.

Parent Testimonials

"Love this school! Love the staff, the teachers, and the facility. We have had three children go through both the Kids Day Out and Preschool programs and couldn't be happier with our decision to go here. We have loved sending our children to a Christian school where they are learning about God every day and at the same time were well prepared for elementary school. This school offers a great experience for the children and for the family as a whole. All in all, Bonhomme Preschool and KDO is a great place to send your child(ren) for a their early childhood experience."

Parent Testimonials

"I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to you for the amazing job you do creating a loving, fun learning environment here at Bonhomme. From the way you greet each child by name with a smile in the morning to special events to the day in/day out excellence of this preschool program, you are the real deal My two boys both learned so much, grew so much, and had a great time doing those things through play. It's so comforting to leave my kiddos in a place where love and care flow so freely from the top down. I'm so sad that I didn't know about
Bonhomme sooner but thankful for the year my oldest had here and for the years my youngest has left."

Parent Testimonials

"As parents we are so happy with the teachers, learning plans and the community within this school at all levels; Kids Day out through Jr. Kindergarten. The teachers and the administrative staff truly love and care for each child, and their family. Junior Kindergarten has far exceeded our expectations. We feel confident our daughter will go onto Kindergarten with the knowledge and skills she will need to succeed next year. That is socomforting since she will be in a new environment. Thank you for building such a well-organized, teaching oriented, safe and friendly environment for children and their parents."

Parent Testimonials

"You ladies truly are magnificent with the changes, innovation, and love you put into this year. I can't believe the my daughter will be moving on from Bonhomme. This has been such an amazing home for my children for the past nine years. My gratitude overwhelms me."

Parent Testimonials

"As a Bonhomme Church member, I knew I wanted my three kids to attend the Preschool and KDO program. What I didn't know is how much I'd fall in love with the halls and everything within them. The staff, the teachers, the special programs, the mom friendships I've created, the events. I didn't expect it, but I am definitely blessed by it. I also didn't know how much my kids would love coming to school each day. Each of them so very different, but all of them given the tools to learn based on their personal style. My oldest just started Kindergarten this year, and I can 100% attest that her incredible social skills today were born in the Bonhomme classrooms."
