Welcome to the BECC Online – Philosophy and Curriculum

The mission of the Bennington Early Childhood Center (BECC) is to provide an intellectually challenging, developmentally appropriate preschool program for children age one to six. The BECC is a preschool program offering half or full-day options for three, four, or five days a week. The BECC is open to the public, serving children of all cultures, backgrounds, and abilities. The environment and program encourage each child to develop as an individual and as part of a group, while exploration, positive social interaction, and emotional security are also fostered. The curriculum is based on the emerging interests and needs of the children, and covers the Vermont Early Learning Standards (VELS).
