Bright Beginnings Preschool
Bright Beginnings Preschool is a parent participation preschool founded in 1978 as part of the FUHSD Adult School. Bright Beginnings strives to provide a program that allows parents of preschool age children to enhance their parenting skills through observation and participation with their child in the preschool setting. We offer high-quality, developmentally appropriate preschool classes together with an enriching parent education program. Bright Beginnings is a well loved community program and has grown from four classes in 1978, to 25 preschool classes today. Learn more about our program by watching this brief video.
Our experienced, credentialed teachers emphasize a variety of age appropriate activities focused on exploration and observation. This approach allows for the 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 grouped by age.
The parent education component of Bright Beginnings is an important element of our program. Parents meet online with their child's teacher to learn developmentally appropriate practices and discuss different aspects of raising a young child. Topics include cognitive development, social development, speech and language development, discipline techniques, and available community resources. Weekly parent participation is required for many Bright Beginnings classes.
