Kindergarten (Age 5 by December 31st)

Kindergarten is an exciting step in your child’s elementary school journey. And Bright Beginnings teachers offer the individualized attention needed for this important year. With age-specific curriculum and skill-building activities, we’ll make sure your child leaves us excited about learning…and confident about the big leap to first grade.

Our Kindergarten Program builds upon the foundational literacy skills, extending the learning in all academic areas and strengthening elementary-level skills.


Signature Practices

Our Life Learners curriculum focuses on the academic and social skills your child needs for success in school and in life, and includes:

  • Important Connections: Welcoming environments that encourage meaningful, engaging, and respectful interactions
  •  Language Process: An emergent curriculum that incorporates each child’s interests and inspires children to be co-creators of their own learning
  •  Social Skills: A focus on problem-solving, decision-making, creativity, negotiation, emotional intelligence, and collaboration
  •  Open-Ended STEAM Activities: Technology and materials for creating, engineering, tinkering, inventing, and innovating; and spaces for discovery and experimentation
  •  Routines: Child-directed choice and school-age rituals to offer stability and boost independence
  •  Guiding Principles: Experiences that motivate children to be leaders, appreciate the world and those who live in it, and connect with and give back to the larger community
