General School Mission

"The experiences and encounters that occur during the early childhood years have a profound effect on later attitudes about self and school. Bright Beginnings is committed to providing the highest quality experiences though a developmentally appropriate curriculum presented in a nurturing and creative way.

A developmentally appropriate curriculum offers children the opportunity to develop and experience life at their own pace. A positive self-image and a core of knowledge result from the opportunities to grow in any environment rich in all elements of mathematics, literature, science, music, drama, art and movement, Bright Beginnings is not alone in this mission. Working together, parents and teachers can provide the best possible environment.
were at Bright Beginnings, we promote the development of the total child. Every child is developmentally different and deserves the opportunity to develop and learn at his or her own rate. Since we humans experience the world with our five senses, we encourage children to "learn by doing" and provide a wide variety of "hands-on" experiences designed to meet the needs of children at different developmental stages.

The experiences and encounters that occur during the early childhood years have a profound effect on later attitudes about self and school. Bright Beginnings is committed to providing each child with the highest quality, developmentally appropriate curriculum possible. A developmentally appropriate curriculum provides a stimulating and challenging play-based environment where every child can experience life at his or her own pace. When given the chance to explore a rich environment, children develop self-confidence and an enthusiasm for learning.

Our well-qualified staff create a nurturing environment that stimulates learning through direct and vicarious experiences. These experiences include math and language exploration, creative art, music and drama activities, science, social studies and movement exploration. We also provide extra-curricular experiences such as community celebrations, parties and field trips. Above all, we provide ample time for play, both indoors and out. Bright Beginnings is proud of its history of supporting parents. Parents are partners in education. We are here to support the family unit in whatever form it exists.
