Belleville Mennonite School's Pre-Kindergarten programs provide an environment in which each child finds an opportunity to develop personally, socially, academically and spiritually. One of our Pre-K teachers, Mrs. Ethel Zook has an educational background including a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Education. Our other Pre-K teacher, Mrs. Becca Peachey has a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and 6 years of experience teaching preschoolers. Mrs. Ethel Zook teaches the Pre-K Counts class and Mrs. Becca Peachey teaches the tuition-based Pre-K Class that is held Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Mrs. Zook is joined by Mrs. Leah Yoder in the afternoon Pre-K Counts class each day. All of our teachers love teaching and love our Lord!
