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."

Our Curriculum Components

The building blocks to balanced education.

Story Surprise

You Will Need:

A familiar story and paper and marker or pen

Directions:

Read the story half way through. Then you and your child make up a different ending to the story. Write it down and ask your child to illustrate it.

Tip:

Young children may have trouble getting started with a new ending. They often like the predictability of familiar stories. Give them an example, and then enlist more ideas.
