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.

"Words are not enough to express how grateful we are for the amazing care that our child gets at Bright Horizons. We are all lucky that you are there."

Story Cards

You Will Need:

Large size index cards magazine pictures or funny card pictures

Directions:

Creat story cards by gluing pictures from magazines or greeting cards onto the index cards. Tell the child these are story cards and we are going to make up a story about them. Start by asking questions like; What do you think happened here? or How do you think this person(or animal) feels? What are they doing? What will they do next? Help out a little if needed.

Tip:

Simple pictures of people making funny faces or in unusual situations make for good stories. Try to use a variety of images.
