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.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically. He always smiles when he sees you at drop off and we can tell he is happy. It brings so much peace of mind knowing our son loves going to school."

Fractions

You Will Need:

Ingenuity

Directions:

Notice and discuss the fractions in your child's world!

  • When eating pizza or a pie, count the pieces of an eight-piece pie, 1/8, 2/8, etc.
  • Help your child cut her sandwich in half, fourths, thirds.
  • Discuss what part of the family she is:  if she is one of six members of a family, she is 1/6th of the family.
  • Let your child divide the dessert among your family members, i.e. if you have 5 brownies and four people, each person gets 1 and 1/4 of a brownie.
  • Include your child when you’re baking something that asks for measurements (1/4 cup, etc.).

Tip:

Here’s a list of books to read on this topic:

  • The Door Bell Rang – Pat Hutchinson
  • Eating Fractions – Bruce McMillan
  • Half Birthday Party – Charlette Pomeranz

If your child does not show an interest in fractions, wait until another time.
