Program Fee Every child enrolled at BBC full/part time will pay the month fee. This helps to pay a fraction of the cost for extra curricular activities (ie: music, storytellers, yoga, Travel Tots, ASL, Norwegian, Adventures in History, dance, soccer...etc.) This also goes towards our parties, events and sponsoring community service projects. Children that are drop in (aka school agers or those that come after services) will pay a $5.00/$10.00 per day fee for each day they are here for extra curricular activities which we call Specials. There is also fees for in school and out of school field trips when they come up.

This includes all preschool curriculum.
All children are in the same classroom. They each work at their own level and pace on common classroom themes/units.

All children attending BBC must be able to go up and downstairs without help while holding on to the railing, drink out of a normal cup, sit in a child size chair and be able to nap on a mat. We do not use bottles, nuks or pack n plays at BBC. No stuff animals/dolls at nap time. They need to be children that aren't going to try to walk out the front door or the back gate.

BBC does not offer special need care for children with ADHD, Autism and needs along those lines, unless they have funding to supply their own PA to be with them while attending BBC and the PA can pass a background check and has current training for a MN preschool class room. BBC keeps trying to enroll children with these types of needs and the families always have to leave at some point. It is just not a good fit for a single teacher classroom. Ms. Jenni has to look out for the needs all of the students, not just any one child. Plus it's not fair to children with special needs that need more one on one attention at times to not be able to get it when needed. BBC is NOT peanut free. Children that are on special milk will drink water while at school.

Full days include preschool and child care together in price. These rates are with the non-paid days off discount worked in, otherwise see drop in rate. Part time is at least 2 days a week ($80 min before fees) . Add $2.50/day for flex schedules week to week schedules for retail and medical workers need to be set at least 4 weeks out always (Ie: On May 15th I need to know what is happening June 15th for the child's flex schedule.) Lunch Discount: $2 will be taken off the daily tuition up to $10 a week, if child is in care all 5 days and they promise to bring their own lunch for the contract year. Discounts are not given on days child is home (they are sick, snow days, vacation, BBC is closed...etc) since you would have to feed your child anyway. This is not something you can go back and forth on. Discounts are not given if the whole class is bringing their lunch that day for whatever reason (covid-19, special theme day). Fast food can only be brought in for the child's birthday. No pop at BBC. Candy is only allowed and will be sent home for Halloween and Valentine's Party days. Candy does not belong in a child's lunch at BBC.
