Bright Horizons

  • Bright Horizons’ kindergarten program recognizes that children will soon be entering schools that have a range of expectations for a child's social and academic performance.
  • Bright Horizons’ kindergartens provide a comprehensive, learning-centered approach that challenges children and supports all areas of development.
  • It recognizes both the value of emergent curriculum and the need for directed, sequential instruction to ensure that children enter first grade with the skills and knowledge expected of them in the school that they will attend.
  • Each Bright Horizons center develops expectations and practices in concert with the local schools that the children will be attending.
  • At the same time, the curriculum in every kindergarten home base builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests.
  • There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills.
  • Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.
  • The Bright Horizons kindergarten extends from the planned child-choice World at Their Fingertips learning environment and incorporates Language Works, Math Counts, Science Rocks, Our World, Art Smart, and Projections to offer each child a kindergarten program for learning designed for school success.
