"Providing a positive learning experience for every child
Bright Start fully accepts the responsibility of providing the finest in early childhood education to preschool and kindergarten children in the Camas, Washougal, and surrounding areas. We have an excellent teaching staff with many combined years of experience. We offer a kindergarten program taught by certified teachers who possess at least a Bachelor's Degree in Education with additional certifications in various other educational fields. Our staff maintains high educational and moral standards and believe these characteristics are essential to our program.
Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to learn and grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. We include music, movement, art, and much more into each school day. We teach the Essential Academic Learning Requirements (referred to as the EALRs) as outlined by the state of Washington. We have chosen these requirements as our base as we believe it will open the door to an accelerated learning experience when your child enters the first grade in either the public or private school system. Each child will be given the opportunity to explore, observe, and ponder as developmentally appropriate. They will be taught that each of us has been created uniquely and that all life is to be valued. Each child will be expected to respect adults and their peers. They will be encouraged to value each person as an individual and treat others as they would want to be treated.
We believe that the foundation for a child to become a life long learner comes from a combination of family and school support, particularly in their early years. We understand that every child has indiviudal strengths and weaknesses, and that they will change and grow with each new day. Bright Start will strive to give each child the personal attention they require to take their next step in life. "
