Our Kindergarten Program

Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

Our center develops expectations and practices in concert with our state curriculum standards so children make an easy transition into the local school system. At the same time, our curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Ever since the first day I walked into Bright Horizons, I have always felt very comfortable that my son would be well taken care of. I thank you all for your caring hearts, teaching right from wrong, and playing a big part in the development of the amazing boy that my son has become."

Learning at Home

Setting the Table

You Will Need:

Silverware and napkins


Ask your child to set the table. The first few times do the task together. Ask your child how many people will be at the table and how many of each item he needs.


Helping at mealtimes is a wonderful way to spend time together when parents have chores to accomplish. Don't worry too much about correctness of placement - focus more on the concept that each person gets one plate, one cup, etc.
