What Makes Us Different

Bethel is very flexible: we work with families to meet their needs. Starting at 4 months of age, Bethel creates a comfortable family-friendly educational environment that is safe and fun. We take children who are not yet potty-trained. With our extended hours, we provide families the security of knowing their children are in safe, skilled, loving, and educated hands. Please call Director Ashlei at 818.788.8269 or 818.266.1237 to inquire.
