This is our 4th year at Bering Drive Christian School and we love it! I have had two children enrolled there and plan on enrolling our 3rd child when he is old enough. The staff has always been very kind and helpful. After comparing prices among 5-6 other preschools in the area, my husband and I found that BDCS's prices were lower/comparable to a lot of the other places that we researched/toured. I love BDCS because they have a great curriculum, but they also allow the children to have appropriate amounts of play time. If you are simply looking for a daycare or a mothers day out then this is NOT the school for you. My oldest son graduated from the 4 year old class knowing how to read (as did most of his classmates) and entered Kindergarten knowledgable of content that a child would usually learn while in Kindergarten. With that being said, the teachers teach the children to read on an individual basis meaning that all children are able to read at their own pace. Another great thing about BDCS is that the children are able to attend enrichment classes almost every day (music, PE, Chapel).
I currently have a 3-year-old daughter at BDCS, and my 7 year-old son is a graduate. We love Bering and have been extremely impressed with the education and teachers. My daughter's class has only 9 children. Both of my children love attending school here, have learned immensely, and I highly recommend BDCS to any of my friends in the area. After completing all 3 years, my son went into kindergarten reading and everything he did in kinder was a repeat of his pre-k class. Students are offered 2 days of music class, 2 days of chapel and 2 days of PE. Most of the children in my son's pre-k class tested into the Vanguard programs in HISD. We are very happy with our choice! By the way, the hours are actually 8-6 pm and their number is 713-780-1299 (not 713-783-2340)!
I have been a member here for several years, intially joining because my son and his wife attended here. They have since moved on to a church nearer the home they built, but I have found a home here that has helped me through a couple of life crisies. The church has a number of ministries they support, with members invited to help in whatever capacity they feel most comfortable. The children's program is outstanding. The sermons are uplifting and inspiring. While I miss the former pastor very much, I am confident the Lord will provide us a new one in His time. I highly recommend the West Houston Church of Christ.
