The Parent Education Department at Bellevue College (BC) offers unique Enrichment Classes for children. These classes include days for parents to assist the teacher in the classroom and a version of Parent Education to match the age of the children involved.
The Discovery Lab is a one day per week science class for five, six and seven year olds. Each week students will have the opportunity to conduct experiments, perform simple dissections, and make creative science projects. Discovery Lab aims to introduce science as an enjoyable and accessible investigation of the world around us.
Topics for the year include:
- marine biology
- space and rockets
- environmental issues
One of the highlights of the year is an overnight field trip.
Parent education classes are held once a month during the children’s class time. Parent education focuses on topics relevant to elementary school-age children including development, social issues, guidance and communication. Parents are required to assist in the children’s classroom six or seven times per year, including providing a snack once a year.
For the 2012-2013 school year, classes meet at Robinswood Barn, located in Robinswood Park, 2432 - 148th Ave. SE in Bellevue, across from the Bellevue College (BC) campus.
