Reggio Inspired Art Class


A process-art based class, we encourage curiosity and imagination and focus on the process of creating rather than the final product. We believe that children learn best through self-initiated experiences with a wide variety of materials in an encouraging atmosphere.


Our Philosophy


Our philosophy is to provide a fun, stimulating, and safe place for your child to develop intellectually, socially, creatively, emotionally, and physically. Our goal is to build each child’s self-esteem and to encourage positive behavior.

We believe that with positive and supportive guidance, and within fair and reasonable limits, all children can develop integrity, self-control, and responsibility. Through the development of their own process of critical thinking, the stage is set for the facilitation of optimum learning.

Through play, children have opportunities to explore, experiment, and learn about the world around them. Art, science, sports, literature, and music are presented to the children in a setting where respect and freedom of choice are valued.

Spaces Available

IN THE 2017/2018 YEAR

We currently have openings in our Monday and Wednesday morning and afternoon classes and our Friday morning class.


What people say

  • They always had fun things planned for the kids each day and always had different focuses each month (seasons, holidays, picnics, field trips to local businesses ).

    ~ Lisa Hill

  • I have to thank you for introducing music to preschool this year. Now we have fun singing together. It is good to see him find ground and settle down.

    ~ Kalyani

  • As parents, we like the inviting, play-based approach of Bayview Community Preschool, and have appreciated the preschool’s  variety of activities and themes – creative things that enrich our children’s understanding and exploration of the world. The caring, supportive environment for both parent and child has been a blessing to our family.

    ~ Karen and Geoffrey Trotter

  • Bayview Community Preschool is everything we imagined a preschool would be. It offers loving and imaginative teachers, new friends and experiences, and a warm community atmosphere.

    ~ Tanya Kyi

  • Bayview Community Preschool was a wonderful introduction to a school setting for both my boys. It provided a warm, caring place where they could not only learn their first steps to independence, but also gain new friendships and grow comfortable and gain confidence in their journey into kindergarten at Bayview
