This is Kindergarten the way parents and grandparents remember it. It includes excellent instruction in core subjects like reading, writing and math as well as special classes such as Bible, art, music, physical education and Spanish. The full day option extends the day to 3:00 pm and provides extra reinforcement of basic skills in the learning process, along with special field trips. Transportation is provided for full day students and also for half day students in the morning. However, parents of half day students are responsible to provide transportation home for their child.

Founded in 1945, Belleville Mennonite School today is a very complete evangelical Christian school. Its strength is its people. The faculty practice biblical integration as the Bible speaks into each subject area. The teachers set the example as they nurture and mentor students towards knowing Christ and making Him known. The students more often are "thermostats" who lead and set the learning culture rather than being "thermometers" who simply reflect the tone and attitude of the day. This is one great launch pad empowering students to serve God with integrity, competence, and passion.
