Current hours and process for attending during the COVID Pandemic:

As we prepare to open up the Bellevue Public Schools' Early Childhood Center, we are requesting families to sign up to visit the center. Until further notice, there will be no option to drop-into the center. Each family may sign up for 1 slot/day and there are 5 slots available during each session.  Every slot is for 1 hr and 45 minutes in duration and will allow for cleaning and sanitizing between families.  

Three rooms will be available during your visit: Gross Motor Yellow Classroom, Literacy Blue Classroom, and Outdoor Nature Explore Classroom. Additionally, each session will include a variety of optional activities: 30 minutes of song time, 30 minutes of story time, and 45 minutes for STEM activities, individual and group activities, playtime, reading together, gross & fine motor skills, art activities, and nature center activities.

Please ensure all adults and children ages 3+ are wearing masks, practice proper social distancing and hand sanitation, and adhere to the CDC recommendations for daily health checks. 

Please note, the BPS ECC does adhere to the BPS school schedule. We will be closed on Sept. 7 for Labor Day and also on September 18 and October 16 for Professional Development. At this time, the center will not be open on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

We ask that you are respectful with our "new normal" at this time. When things improve, we will add more families to our session times. 

We are looking forward to seeing you! 

-The ECC Team
