School Year Programs
Early Childhood Education
Bar-T’s newest program is our Early Childhood Education Program. Based at two locations, Reston, VA and Thurgood Marshall ES, we are excited to offer care to children of all ages (infants through school aged). Our mission, our philosophy and the Bar-T culture all guide our staff to respect each of the kids and adults that participates in our programs as individuals, working to provide meaningful choices throughout all aspects of our programs. We go beyond creating environments that help to ensure both physical and emotional safety by listening, showing respect and helping each member of our community remember that they are of great worth.
The Bar-T Pre-Kindergarten Program is designed to provide a high quality, creative, hands-on, child-centered learning environment for children. Students must be 4 years old by September 1st, and be fully toilet trained, or 3 years old and fully toilet trained at our Belmont, Lakewood, and Poolesville programs.
The Bar-T staff are committed and experienced professionals who provide children with a caring and stimulating atmosphere. They listen carefully and respond quickly to the needs of each child. Our teachers are certified in Early Childhood Instruction. Each class has one assistant who is trained to aid children in their learning experiences. We are dedicated to positively contributing to a child’s life.
Our Bar-T Kids Club program is the largest private provider of before and after school programs for children in Montgomery County. We strongly believe that children need to have choices, and we provide a variety of opportunities for children each day. At Bar-T Kids Club, we allow our children to choose which clubs, games, sports leagues, and special events they would most enjoy.
Our 2:40 club at North Bethesda Middle School is specially tailored towards middle school students. We offer the same great staff and care, while crafting activities and events which are more appealing towards our older students.
We recognize the need for structure and guidelines for adolescents after school and are dedicated to providing activities that teens will want to be a part of. In partnership with the school, parents, and Bar-T staff, our goal is to involve as many teens as possible to participate in this exciting and unique opportunity.
