Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The need for intellectual and social skills in our rapidly changing society has never been greater. The early education and training of our children is the key for developing those skills. We, at Bright Beginnings Academy, have an opportunity to be a positive influence on the lives of children, helping to provide the key necessary for unlocking those intellectual and social skills. The children under our care represent an extension of the family unit, and the emotional, intellectual, social, and physical development of those children is our biggest concern.

Bright Beginnings Academy's educational philosophy is centered around a structured, yet imaginative environment. Providing each child with frequent opportunities to experience success and gain self-esteem, which are essential in each child's adjusting, exploring, and growing experience. Bright Beginnings Academy always respects the values, needs, and rights of each individual child without compromise. We, at Bright Beginnings Academy, wish to help each child start his or her education in a positive, supportive, healthful, and imaginative environment.

Children learn and develop best in a secure and loving environment. Since we are concerned with the growth of the whole child, we aim to balance their development in all areas, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Our staff is dedicated to helping children grow at their natural pace by building their self-confidence, strengths and skills, which will help unlock the door to a BRIGHT future"
