New Beacon Creative Arts Pre-School (BCAP) 
at Scenic Hudson's New River Center at Long Dock Park, Beacon

Mill Street Loft Arts located at Scenic Hudson’s new River Center at 8 Long Dock Road on the Beacon Waterfront announces the Opening of their upcoming Beacon Creative ArtsPre-School (BCAP).  The pre-school program will start on Monday, September 19th and run through June 2012 with two day (Tuesday & Thursday) and four day (Monday - Thursday) programs, with morning and afternoon sessions.  BCAP will serve children ages 30 months to 5 years.  

An Open House for the program will be held at the River Center on Saturday, September 10th from 3:00 - 6:00pm. Parents are invited to meet the staff, tour the grounds and facilities and pre-register.  Director Heather Montgomery, E.C.E., has over 20 years of experience developing and teaching pre-school creative arts programs.  BCAP’s philosophy is to take a developmental approach toward each child.  Recognizing the value of play in learning, the program will aim to foster each child’s optimum social, emotional, physical and intellectual development in a supportive, nurturing, creative and happy environment.  BCAP will provide creative experiences that excite a love for learning, music, sculpture, painting, drawing, language and creative movement.  By recycling and using non-toxic materials, children will also learn to understand and take care of the world around them.

The River Center is the new Southern Dutchess satellite location for Mill Street Loft, providing year-round creative and innovative arts programming for children and adults in the newly restored historic “red barn” on the Beacon Waterfront.  This location provides a beautiful setting, environmental park grounds and inspiring Hudson River views for the pre-school and other arts programming.   For more information on the Open House, BCAP and other Mill Street Loft programs please call 845-471-7477.

Hey Ben,


go to this link for answers to your questions. I'm just helping promote it becaue i also teach (teens) at the River Center, and I want it to really succeed for Beacon.


Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

This is wonderful.


Two questions: what will be the morning and afternoon hours specifically, and what's the cost breakdown?
