  • Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora

    Music the Whole Family Will Love!

    Music encourages rhythm, motor skills, and self-expression. It also teaches social skills, sounds, and language – important abilities that will help children make friends and face challenges when they enter school. 

    Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora® makes it easy to put music into your child’s world. Our station gives you access to family-friendly music from today’s popular artists that you can feel great about…and that everyone will enjoy.

    Looking to turn that music into learning? Strike a chord with Family Tambourine Making.

  • Dino-mite Duel!

    A curriculum challenge between KPrep and PS2

    Imagine this...
    Two teachers are discussing their upcoming curriculums in the staff room one day and discover they are both doing the same theme: DINOSAURS! Who doesn't love dinosaurs!?
    As both our KPrep teachers and PS2 teachers are very competitive they decided to make it into a challenge!
    Here were the rules:
    1. Classrooms documented their dinosaur activities in their What in the World
    2. Administration looked each day at the activities and picked the best one for that day.
    3. The winning activity was posted on the center's Facebook page daily
    By the end of the week it was clear that both classroom's had done such a phenomenal job that we declared both to be the winners!
