Welcome to Bright Beginnings Preschool and GymKids Programs.
Bright Beginnings is a parent participation preschool and parent education program.
Child's Program: A developmental approach to learning is emphasized and a variety of age appropriate activities are presented for exploration and observation. This approach allows for development of the whole child: emotional, physical, intellectual, and social. Children learn at their own pace and through their own learning style in an enriched environment. Classes are organized by age and are structured to facilitate learning.
Parent's Program: Parents interact with and observe children in the preschool setting. They function as helpers in the classroom and on the playground. They assist the teacher and supervise for safety. Parents learn through observing children in the classroom setting and by participating in the daily discussion. Adult students meet with their teacher to learn developmentally appropriate practices and discuss different aspects of raising a young child including: cognitive development, social development, speech and language development, discipline techniques, and available community resources. Weekly parent participation is required for all Bright Beginnings classes.
