BSD Early Childhood Center utilizes the Project Construct curriculum that empowers children to do more than memorize and repeat selected information. This program is rooted in inquiry-based learning which offers open-ended experiences and encourages critical thinking. These skills build a strong foundation for future learning and academic success.
When you enter the Brentwood School District Early Childhood Center, you’ll feel right at home in our safe, welcoming environment. Our center features:
- Bright classrooms that support the imagination of each child
- Large, fenced playground that meets safety standards
- Indoor multi-purpose room for gross motor play, music, and movement
- Project room / motor lab to help young bodies understand their world
- Science lab and sensory tables for science experimentation and inquiry
- Children’s garden for outdoor sensory experiences
- Full kitchen for cooking exploration
In addition to the Early Childhood Center, Brentwood offers a FREE program for parents with children up to age 5 or who are prenatal and preparing to welcome their child.
Parents as Teachers (PAT) is an early learning program which supports a parent's role as their child's first and most influential teacher. Participation is free and available to all Brentwood residents.
After completing the online enrollment a Parent Educator will contact you to answer your questions and further explain our program. Your participation is always voluntary.

Parents have many opportunities to volunteer their time! Building Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs) seek avenues to raise funds, which are used to enhance learning, sponsor student activities, and support our amazing teachers.
We truly believe that successful schools are built upon strong, trusting relationships with families. Therefore, we strive to use the expertise of our teachers, parents, and community members to meet the needs of all of our students. We welcome you to our schools!
Community volunteers in our schools and activities enrich the overall educational program and strengthen our schools’ relationships with homes, businesses, public agencies, and private institutions. The presence of volunteers in the classroom, on school grounds, and at extracurricular activities also enhances supervision of students and contributes to school safety.
In order to ensure a system that maximizes safety for our children, Board policy (GBEBC) requires background checks be performed for each volunteer/mentor who directly works with students or who is in the school on a regular basis, including those wishing to serve as room parent or anyone wanting to accompany children on field trips. These background checks include:
- FBI/Highway Patrol, which requires fingerprinting at a designated location. (This is a one-time requirement that must be completed separately from any other school district or employer.)
- Child Abuse or Neglect/Criminal Record check (must be submitted annually)
- Sexual Misconduct : Staff-to-Student, video which is designed to dispel common misconceptions about child abuse and to empower all adults working with children to be vigilant in maintaining a safe environment free of adult behaviors that could increase the risks or allow signs of abuse to go unnoticed. (must be completed annually)
Sexual Misconduct: Staff to Student Video Link (Your email we have on file will be your user name)
All expenses for background checks for volunteers will be assumed by the District. All information collected on volunteers/mentors will be considered confidential to the extent allowed by law and will only be used to protect the students or minimize disruption to the educational environment. All volunteer work is kept in a secured place in the central office.
All background checks must be completed prior to volunteering in our district.

It is not enough to simply denounce racism. Brentwood School District is committed to ensuring all students in our care, as well as their families and our staff members, are treated with respect, love, and care whatever their race, gender identity, orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status. As our mission states, we see each child and support them on their individual pathway. Racism has no place in our community, and we will not tolerate actions or words that make any members of the Brentwood family feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
It’s imperative that we go above and beyond to make sure all of our students, especially those who have been historically underserved, have our support. This is not the kind of work that happens once and is over. This will be a continued focus for us and this strategic plan will help outline our current goals and progress surrounding race, equity, and inclusion.
