Bear Lake/Kindergarten

We are known as Bear Lake at Beattie, named after Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Those who have walked the scenic trail around Bear Lake have vivid memories of the beauty surrounding them, while taking it all in through each of their senses.  As a part of Beattie’s Bear Lake kindergarten, your child will make many wonderful memories of their own throughout the year, using each of their five senses as well.  Our goals to help each child develop a firm foundation for future academic success follow.
