Methodology

No separation anxiety

Child friendly environment at Bright Start Pre-School and use of scientific methods for settling children prevents the development of separation anxiety.

Developmentally appropriate challenges

In the Early Childhood Program, our teachers design activities which foster healthy social skills and encourage academic success through developmentally appropriate challenges.

Learning through play: combining teacher-directed and open-ended activities

The importance of children learning through play is carefully designed into the program. Under the guidance of nurturing teachers, children are given numerous opportunities to construct their learning through a combination of teacher-directed and open-ended activities. At Bright Start, children develop independence, determination and concentration as they interact with materials designed to stimulate the “inner urge” of the child to learn. Socially, they develop the respect and discipline to share materials and to help each other as they learn side by side.

Value uniqueness of each child as both a gift and an opportunity

We understand every student is a unique individual, thus, differentiated instruction methods are used by teachers to support each student’s distinctive course of growth in academic excellence. In our small classes, teachers identify the learning needs of each student and provide reinforcement and enrichment as appropriate to meet those needs.

Parent-Teacher conferences

Communication is an important aspect of our partnership with kindergarten parents. We create alliances with parents and focus on seeing children within a social-cultural context. Each child’s progress is formally reported to parents four times per year. Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled at the end of every three months. Two are mid-term reporting periods and two at the end of each term. An interim report is sent to call attention to any particular concerns and review progress if required.

Curriculum

We provide a stimulating environment for children to explore, interact, and investigate, thus helping them to learn about themselves and the world around us.
