We are very pleased that you are considering Bright Starts of CNY for your child’s early childhood experience. It is our goal to provide a high quality program that promotes the growth and development of your child. We provide an environment that allows children to play creatively and to investigate their world safely and with purpose.
Our programis based on the New York Preschool Learning Standards however we don't have a 'cookie cutter' curriculum. This means we use multiple modalities and follow the children's interests when planning activities and themes. Activities are age appropriate and balanced between teacher directed and child directed learning activities and consist of hands on learning experiences. Our program allows children to learn at their own pace (with encouragement and 'pushing' when challenged) and activities are created to meet individual needs and learning abilities. We believe that worksheets have no place in early education therefore your child’s backpack will not come home stuffed with worksheets and coloring pages each day. You can read more about this here.
