The Belmont Community Center Preschool is a developmental program reflecting current early childhood education philosophy. It is designed to enhance and enrich the social, emotional, physical, and academic development of 3, 4, and 5 year olds. We provide an environment which stimulates the child’s natural curiosity as they learn through play as well as peer and adult interaction.
