The Belton Early Childhood School (BECS), located at 501 E. Fourth Ave. in Belton, is offering a Community Learning Day on April 5 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. to provide an opportunity for community members, business leaders, and prospective parents to learn more about the school’s innovative approach to learning. The campus accommodates about 525 pre-kindergarten students in the Belton ISD district, and its classrooms offer hands-on, realistic, and authentic learning experiences that foster a love of learning and provide students with interactive learning experiences.
Principal Sheila Surovik said, “Our goal is to make learning engaging for each and every student. Our teachers can provide a variety of age-appropriate skills while students engage in fun and meaningful experiences that grow their skills academically and socially.”
At the Community Learning Day, attendees will tour the school’s eight different experience classrooms and see teachers in action. Participants will learn about enrolling at BECS, after-school care options, and tips to prepare incoming students for a school environment.
Online enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year opens on April 12, while onsite enrollment is available from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on April 25 and April 27 and from noon-7 p.m. on April 26.
