The Lambert Family

Meet the Lambert family and hear their story of leaving and returning to BCS:  

We are the Lambert family. My name is Erin, my husband is Jeremy and our six year old daughter is Allie.  My husband and his family have been Bookcliff Baptist members for 30+ years and I began attending with Jeremy 11 years ago.  Allie attended BCS pre-school and had a wonderful experience.  Heading into Kindergarten, we struggled with whether to send her to BCS or public school. We continually went back and forth on the decision.  Public school was free, near our house, offered 1/2 days, and we wouldn't have to worry about the transition from private to public when the time came.

After much thought and prayer we enrolled Allie into public school.  In her second week, we asked her how her day went. It broke our hearts when she said "When do we start learning about Jesus?" We nearly pulled her out that week.  Over the course of the year, there were more struggles and disappointments.  She had a large class, and when I volunteered, I noticed Allie seemed almost lost in the crowd. We continued to pray about possibly moving her back to BCS.  At the end of Kindergarten, we asked her where she would like to go?  She had mixed feelings because she had close friends at each, but in the end she said "I want to learn about Jesus in school.”  At that moment, we knew.  Since being back at BCS, Allie has improved educationally at a much faster rate, she came out of her shell, and enjoys learning about Jesus again.  As parents, we see the difference in her peers, the staff, and even the attitudes of the fellow parents.  We have peace knowing she is around positive Christian influences while receiving a quality education. 

As far as the transition to public school when the time comes....“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6

Thank you to the Lamberts for sharing their experience about returning to BCS!   If you have a story you’d like to share, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., we would love to hear it!  

I can’t begin to thank my daughters teachers and staff at Bookcliff enough for all of the care and encouragement they have giving her this year. As a parent with a child who had not been in daycare or in anyone’s care other than her grandmothers it was terrifying for me to leave her at first. She has grown so much over the last year and I am so thankful my husband and I made the decision to take her to Bookcliff.

This is our second year at BCS and my daughter loves every single teacher here! I have been amazed at all the skills and knowledge she has picked up at BCS. We have tried other preschools in the valley and no one compares. BCS offers so much more than we found anywhere else. It is always clean, the teachers are always genuinely happy and pleasant, and they cultivate a happy positive atmosphere that my daughter is thriving in.

Going to BCS gave me a very firm standing in my Christian faith. The teachers there were able to show me Christ in ways that have remained with me through my adolescence and that I plan to carry on into adulthood as well. Spending time with strong Christians at such a formidable age helped me become the person I am today.

I am so thankful my parents were able to send me to a Christian school with such loving and caring staff and teachers. It was a different transition from public to private school. I can’t say I didn’t make mistakes, but through God’s grace I made it through high school still wanting to go to church and not straying away from God’s plans for me. Which makes BCS’s motto verse, Proverbs 22:6, perfect: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will NOT depart from it.” Thank you teachers, staff, and friends of BCS!

During my time at BCS, I was able to form close, lifelong relationships with many people. BCS instilled in me positive values that have served me well in my jobs, high school, and college career. Most importantly, however, BCS gave me a solid foundation in Christian values and knowledge that has blossomed into a passionate relationship with Jesus—and I will always be thankful for that
