Cristina Blevins, Director
BUSD's Early Childhood Education Office connects children and families in the community with early learning services. Children learn through experience and discovery. BUSD strives to prepare children to enter kindergarten with a healthy self-concept and a positive attitude toward school and learning. This is accomplished by offering age-appropriate curriculum designed to develop social, emotional, physical and cognitive abilities in our students. Since every child is unique, our State Preschool program is designed to allow children to initiate activities that grow from personal interest and intentions. Through exploration, BUSD State Preschool students interact with materials, people, ideas and events. Our preschool teachers encourage active learning by providing resources, planning experiences and creating an inviting environment in which all children can learn.
BUSD's State Preschool program is offered to qualifying children ages 3 and 4, with a focus on Kindergarten readiness. Registration information is available at the BUSD Early Childhood Education Office at 9301 Flower St., Bellflower CA 90706, or by calling (562) 461-2227.
