Special Study Programs:
Our program is based on the understanding that infants need dependable caregivers that will provide praise, attention, concern, and care on a consistent basis. To foster strong brain development, infants are provided with opportunities to explore in a safe environment with caregivers that respond to the child's emotional and intellectual needs. Daily sheets will be distributed to parents. Provided booties are to be worn in all infant rooms. Observations will be conducted on each child.
Learning is seen as a developmental process that occurs naturally and progressively with a stimulating and nurturing environment. Our Toddler Program offers a wide variety of interesting play experiences geared toward each child's developmental level. Opportunities are provided for multi-sensory experiences aimed at delighting and inspiring curiosity. Independence is strongly encouraged at this stage in our program. Daily sheets will be distributed to parents. Observations will be conducted on each child.
Brightside Academy follows the Core Knowledge Preschool framework for children 3-5 years old. With a strong focus on challenging but appropriate content, the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence is unique among early childhood programs.
