Bethel Learning Centers’ mission is to provide high-quality care and education for young children in a nurturing and caring environment that honors the unique value of each child as a gift of God.
At Bethel, we believe that the most critical elements of a program for young children are the manner in which our teachers relate to our children and their parents, the organization of the learning environment, the instructional materials, and the curriculum.
We further believe that all areas of child development (spiritual, intellectual, educational, social, emotional and physical) are closely interrelated. We encourage the pursuit of individual excellence and growth in spirit as well as knowledge.
Bethel Learning Centers uses the “A Beka Book” curriculum, a complete academic program for Child Development Center and Christian Academy students. More information is available at the Abeka web site (Abeka), which describes the program as follows:
“Three decades ago, God raised up A Beka Book to provide Christian schools with God-honoring, high-quality textbooks and teaching aids to help each school fulfill the goal of its ministry. The hundreds of traditional Christian educational materials developed by A Beka Book have been developed and refined over a period of 50 years in the classroom. Christian schools throughout the nation recognize that A Beka Book sets the standard of excellence in the publishing of textbooks and other materials for Christian schools.”
Presently, we employ more than fifty persons to make up the Bethel Learning Centers Staff. Our child development staff meets all state licensing requirements through the South Carolina Division of Child Day Care Licensing.
