BCCDP 2018-19 Registration Form
The Broad Creek Child Development Program (BCCDP) is a traditional half-day preschool program operated to meet the needs of families within the community. It is a non-profit and non-sectarian program. The curriculum is designed to fulfill the developmental requirements of the individual child, while also encouraging a sense of community and a spirit of cooperation within the child.
Broad Creek recognizes that preschool children learn by doing. Children attending BCCDP have the opportunity to interact with children their own age while learning about their neighborhood, discovering nature, developing motor skills, and creating through art and music. Field trips, visits from community helpers and special events round out their preschool experience.
Participation of parents benefits BCCDP and most importantly the Broad Creek children. As a result, all families are required to perform 5 hours of volunteering for the school year. Through this participation, the school’s program and physical environment are enriched. With the professional guidance of the school staff and the efforts of parents working with staff, the type of preschool and the experiences parents want for their children can be built and maintained.
BCCDP is licensed by the Maryland Department of Education Office of Child Care. In addition, the four-year old program at BCCDP is accredited by the Maryland State Board of Education.
