Bellwood Pre-School at UUCNH

Serving the Needs of the North Hills Since 1965

Bellwood Pre-School

Bellwood is located in the old farmhouse and barn of what was once a large dairy farm in Franklin Park, PA. Bellwood pre-school is on the grounds of UUCNH.  The lovely rural setting insulates children from the bustle of traffic while remaining convenient for parents. To do so, it makes use of the parking lot and the building at UUCNH to greatly expand the space available.

Three of the childhood development  that are consistent with Unitarian Universalism  that Bellwood Strives to do are:

  • Support your child’s developing cooperation

  • Nurture your child’s developing independence

  • Bolster your child’s developing responsibility

Bellwood History at UUCNH

Since 1965, Bellwood Preschool has operated as a community outreach of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills. Bellwood Preschool does not teach or endorse any particular religious belief system, but in line with the principles of Unitarian Universalism, we teach our students the principles of respect and value for all people, kindness towards others, a celebration of diversity, and a sense of wonder for the natural world. These principles are integrated into all of our teachings.

Based on the collaboration with UUCNH Bellwood can offer:

  • Special student performances: Halloween Parade, Holiday Musical, and Spring Art Show.

  • Beautiful outdoor setting for the children to explore.

  • Use of UUCNH for safe and secure drop off and pick up of students.
