Bethesda Christian School

It is with heavy hearts and an abundance of caution that the decision has been made to suspend the operation of Bethesda Christian School for one school year. The health and safety of our children, our staff and their families are our priority. The uncertainty of the parameters of the Coronavirus, the difficulty of maintaining social distance with preschoolers, the challenge of providing a healthy environment and the questions about how the public school schedule will effect staff availability have led us to conclude that it is not in the best interests of our children or staff to reopen the school in August. It is the intention of the BCS Board to work diligently to reopen the school in August of 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation to see if there will be an opportunity to reopen earlier.


Serving our community for many generations, Bethesda Christian School is a pre-school ministry serving children two through four years old.  Preschool is from 8:45-12:00, with Lunch Bunch available from 12:00-2:00 p.m.  Members of Bethesda receive reduced tuition fees.

Bethesda Christian School exists to help children grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.  Each child is treated as a person of worth, with unique and individual abilities and emotions, and experiences an awareness of God and a growing realization of God's love.  We recognize each child as a special gift to the world, and believe a child's development as a whole person is the mark of a successful early childhood education.

Our goal is to provide the highest possible standard of care and the most appropriate learning environment for the children in our program. Because preschoolers learn best through play, we use a center-based, age appropriate developmental curriculum, following the recommendations of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. (NAEYC) We believe that children benefit greatly from 1:1 educational opportunities with adults, so classes have both a lead teacher and an assistant. Additionally, we have been rated by DSS as an ABC Enhanced Provider by meeting a higher licensing standard than required for church registration. We are the only faith-based facility in Kershaw County to hold this rating. While following the NAEYC standards, we include several opportunities for curriculum development and enrichment each week, including;

  • Chapel in the sanctuary with the Pastor
  • The Gospel Project for Preschool
  • Zoo Phonics-3K
  • Letterland-4K
  • TeachSmart Interactive Whiteboard activities
  • Music and Movement Class
  • Spanish Class

Bethesda Christian School offers part time preschool for toddlers through 4k as well as full time care, year- round, for infants though 5 years olds. 

Bethesda Christian School will offer preschool from 8:45-12:00 for children between the ages of two and four years old. Lunch Bunch from 12:00 – 2:00 is available on a reserved or as needed basis for children enrolled in the preschool program.
