Beavercreek PreschoolOur Preschool Program
Our program is for children 2 1/2 years thru 3 – 4 years of age that are potty trained. At BCLC we realize that not every child learns the same way. We incorporate instruction with movement, song and hands on activity. The Preschool child benefits from the development of social skills vital in building strong character values. We foster creativity, independence, responsibility and caring for others in a safe, nurturing atmosphere. We encourage our students strengths, making them a valued part of their classroom and school. BCLC is rich in values of spiritual growth supported by daily devotion and weekly chapel. This balance of instruction and Christian values help prepare our students for long-term academic and social success.

Our Classrooms
Our max classroom ratio is 8 for children 2 1/2 years old and 12 for children 3 years old with 1 teacher. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each child as an individual and also meet and exceed the Ohio Common Core Standards mandated by the state. The educational experience provides a lasting value in the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development of the child.

Our Teachers
Our teachers are professional educators, but they are also eager to help your child have a fun and positive start to their school life. Our staff meets all state requirements, and they are dedicated to the care and guidance of children through Christian standards and ideals. They teach in both group and individual settings to ensure that your child is developing the skills they will need for first grade and beyond.

Morning Preschool Teacher 

Hi- My name is Stacy and I started at BCLC almost 4 years ago in one of our Pre-K rooms. I moved upstairs to Preschool almost 3 years ago. I adore kids and my absolute favorite moments are the excitement they get when they realize they learned something new! Outside of BCLC, I adore the moments I get with my daughter, going for long hikes and grabbing my camera for as many pictures as I can get.



DeAnna Bixel

Afternoon Preschool Teacher

Hello, my name is DeAnna. I am a junior at the University of Cincinnati studying Early Childhood. I have been working at BCLC as an afternoon teacher for the past five years. It has been a joy to watch each child learn and grow. My goal is to help guide the children to grow academically and most importantly spiritually. I do this by having fun, hands on activities, stories, devotions, and prayer every day.

This is my 17th year at BCLC. We are going to have a very exciting year with lots of fun things to do. We will count to 10 or higher, name some upper case letters, recognize, duplicate and extend simple patterns and my favorite thing to do is cooking projects and science experiments.

Morning Preschool Teacher

 I first discovered BCLC in 1999 when my daughter was enrolled in Pre-K and discovered their wonderful program. I have been blessed to work here ever since. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Wright State University, but feel that my experiences as a parent and God’s direction fueled my passion for teaching. Each week we explore a new letter or theme through books, crafts, activities, music and games with God as our teacher. I enjoy my Preschool students because I get to relive every day as “New” and “Amazing” through their eyes!

Morning Preschool Teacher

I have worked at BCLC since 2007.  I love working with children and have always been involved with a children’s program, whether it was through church or work. 

One of my favorite bible verses is Prov. 2:6; Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

I believe that a child should have a strong foundation and a great support system to help them grow, and that is why I choose to teach.
