Preparing your child for school.

At Bright Starts Daycare & Learning Center, we give pre-school children many opportunities to develop a love for learning. They will be given more freedom to explore and learn based on their interests. They have access to a wide variety of learning centers, allowing them to understand how to share and play with others while building independence and confidence.

Their teachers develop weekly lesson plans that guide academic growth, model classroom behavior, and offer children solutions on how to deal with strong feelings. Creative activities are designed to focus on reading, math, science, and social studies. Children will develop skills in creating and explaining patterns, naming and recognizing letters, identifying colors and shapes, understanding differences in weather and seasons, and counting forwards and backwards. Teachers will engage children in longer conversations using a greater variety of words. They will prompt children to explain an idea to further predict what will happen next in a story, a math puzzle, or a science experiment.

At Bright Starts Daycare & Learning Center, we are very big on helping children understand their feelings. For example, if a child is mad or angry, our teachers will repeat their feelings back to them and help them understand how to cope and deal with their strong emotions. Teachers encourage the children to seek out others during playtime and build relationships with them. They will then learn how to resolve disagreements with their new friends with minimal teacher involvement.

Pre-school is one of the most creative times in a child’s life as it continues to develop their imagination. At Bright Starts Daycare & Learning Center, we incorporate creative thinking in daily activities, allowing all children to express themselves through drama, music, dance, and arts and crafts.
