Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Bright Futures we believe that each individual child is VERY UNIQUE with special talents and abilities. Each child grows and develops at his own pace. Children need a preschool program that accepts them as they are and helps them grow and develop. Bright Futures recognizes the importance of building self confidence in children. A confident child feels success in school and in life. Bright Futures creates those educational opportunities to gain self-worth, competence and confidence.
We believe children need adults who are loving, kind, and help them learn. We believe that parents are the child’s best and most important teacher. Bright Futures empowers parents to be the best teachers that they can be.
We believe that children learn best by using their bodies, their senses and their natural curiosity in their world. We believe that children need opportunities to create their own work, play spaces, and games so they can develop a sense of self. We believe that children need time and encouragement to play, because through play the young child learns to relate to others, use language, explore ideas, and control their environment. We believe each child should feel happy in the preschool program, eager to learn and eagerly awaited by the staff.
We, at Bright Futures, strive to provide the benefits necessary for the child to be healthy, grow and develop in an integrated learning environment, and gain the parental support necessary to succeed in school."
