Stay to Play


We are offering a new & exciting program at BELA! If you have a child between the ages of  2-5 join us for a  unique learning opportunity for you and your child!

Studies continue to confirm that the preschool years shape the way a child thinks, learns and behaves. Knowing that parents are their child's first and most influential teachers, we invite you to ‘Stay to Play’. It's a chance to learn, bond and have  fun with your child, other parents, and experienced early learning practitioners. These afternoon sessions, will be designed to combine learning opportunities and  play time for parents with their child; while BELA staff model developmentally appropriate activities for parents who will have opportunities to participate, observe and engage in learning opportunities designed just for them!

So what does that look like?
