Our process


Parents of BELC students must be working or entered in a job training program or in college. The exception is special needs children or families. As part of our family literacy program the director will provide the resources to families in accessing adult education programs, job training, and public library services upon entry. You will receive a community guide upon enrollment that provides information about town agencies and resources. Please be aware that as an early education facility, we are not a babysitting service and do not offer wrap around care and that attendance should reflect your working hours.

Infants must be 8 weeks old to begin in our Infant Toddler Room. Preschoolers must be at least 2.9 months by September. Our 5 School Readiness slots ensure that all 3 and 4 year have access to our program.

Before entry, we must have an initial application, a parent agreement, an emergency authorization form, a child and family information form, a Facebook and directory authorization form and a current physical form. All immunizations must be up to date. We provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack as part of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and require a food reimbursement form upon entry, and updated yearly.

Our enrollment process consists of the following steps:

1. Visit the School

2. Submit an application 

3. Confirm availability in your child's preferred classroom

4. Complete enrollment forms

5. Return enrollment forms to the Center

All of our documents can be found in the Forms section. We will gladly assist you in completing any of the forms should you have questions. Please return all forms via email to our Director, Diane Pappacoda at Dianepappacoda@yahoo.com
