Mother of Alice (Former Nursery Student)
“We greatly cherished our time at BCB. Our daughter absolutely loved everything about the school and is missing it already as we move to another city. As parents, we especially identified with the school's values and principles of being independent, responsible, and learning through play. The way in which the school was able to convert to online learning so quickly and in such a swift manner was impressive.”
