Resources

BCCC hopes that this resources section of the handbook will aid families, both enrolled and in our greater community. Our handbook and other resources specific to our center can be found under the family handbook tab to the left while the reading list and articles will be helpful for any young family or early childhood educator. Often this recommended literature is what our team is using currently to guide our practice and many of the books are owned by the center. If you are an enrolled family interested in borrowing one, feel free to stop in the office.
