KidKare is the BHM schools preschool and school age child care program available at Hanover, Montrose, Northwinds, Parkside and Tatanka schools.
A staff person is available at the Community Education office M-F, 8 am-330 pm (except holidays and some non-school days) to pick up your Blue card, be assigned a Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) instructor, etc.
BHM Community Education offers classroom instruction throughout the year (Fall A Sept/Oct, Fall B Oct/Nov, Winter Jan/Feb, Spring A Feb/March, Spring B April/May and many sections during the summer) and behind-the-wheel instruction year round. It is recommended students are age 15 by the last day of classroom instruction as this is the age the student needs to be to take the Written Knowledge Test. Don't wait until the deadline to register... classes fill quickly so early registration is encouraged.
The fee includes 30 hours of classroom instruction, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with a licensed teacher AND all classroom materials. BTW instruction is typically scheduled one-hour each month for six months which allows time in-between for parent/guardian practice driving with the student. Once you have your permit, do not wait to schedule your first BTW instruction.
Driver’s Education is not funded by the state department, therefore, all costs must be incurred by the family upon registering. (No discounts or scholarships are available for the driver education program.)
