The philosophy of Bear Creek United Methodist Church School incorporates Piagetian principles. The curriculum is thoughtfully selected, skillfully presented and carefully matched to the child’s level. Content is presented in different ways according to each child’s stage of development. A discovery approach to learning is offered and provides opportunities for observation and hands-on experiences. A child learns by doing, by exploring the environment and by using all the senses. Realizing that each child has a unique learning style, the educational goal is to help him/her develop at an optimal rate while nurturing a positive self-concept.
From the Director
My name is Toni Bejko and I am so excited to introduce myself as the director of Bear Creek United Methodist Church School. I am honored to be amongst the extremely faithful and talented staff, which is known for their dedication to early childhood education, but more importantly, to loving and nurturing children. Over the past 30 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.
