BeeSchool Preschool

Students must be two years and seven months old by Aug. 31st, 2024 and potty trained.


What is the BeeSchool Preschool?

The BeeSchool PreSchool combines the core elements of the Upland program - the idyllic 23-acre campus, the 4 A's curriculum, a focus on problem-solving, and our emphasis on community - with our play-based philosophy for early childhood education. 

We understand that school is your child's “home away from home.”  We strive to make the BeeSchool a warm, nurturing, fun, and exciting place to be. We focus on learning, laughing, playing, and discovering. Our students enhance their social, emotional, intellectual, cognitive, fine, and gross motor skills while building confidence and self-esteem.

We combine traditional learning with outdoor education and have created our own unique hands-on curriculum using Growing Up Wild as our backbone.
