Schedule Options

BPCP accepts children ages 33 months through 5 years. Children must be potty trained by the start of school. Our program is open from September through mid-May, following the Minneapolis Public Schools calendar. Classes are held from 9am-12pm, Monday through Friday. Two-day options (M/T), three-day options (W/Th/F), and five-day schedules are available. The consent of the teachers and parent board are required to exceed a three-day schedule for children under age 4. Classes are no larger than 15 students per day and are staffed by two teachers and one parent helper.



Current tuition rates (subject to change):
  • Two day schedule: $174 per month
  • Three-day schedule: $261 per month
  • Five-day schedule: $435 per month
Families with two children enrolled simultaneously receive a 10% tuition discount for the second child. Tuition is due by the first of each month.

Parent Involvement

Parents/guardians of students at BPCP take an active role in the education of their children. They volunteer in the classroom once a month, attend monthly membership meetings, and serve on committees to support the school. Parent involvement helps keep BPCP affordable and makes our community responsive to student needs.
