Preschool

Bright beginnings early learning center

Our preschool program offers creativity and is structured so your child will learn as they are having fun! The seven domains of school readiness are incorporated in our preschool curriculum. These would include social and personal development, language, scientific thinking, social studies, arts and health. All of these are integrated in the preschool activities through centers and circle time.

Many wonderful adventures await your child as they grow.

We have distinct learning centers: art, blocks, computers, dramatic play, language, writing, library, math, science, sensory, small manipulatives and social studies. Your child will choose from a variety of these centers to promote exploration and discovery learning. During circle time, children will learn about calendars, the weather, character building, phonics, and song phonemic awareness. In addition to our center play and weekly themed activities, we also introduce Spanish and American Sign Language. Our Spanish and American Sign Language classes are taught using a curriculum based on a literacy-rich program of language and cultural instruction enhanced by music and movement.

Our curriculum promotes a strong focus on language skills and pre reading skills. We concentrate on literature content such as the author of the book, illustration, reading left to right, phonics and pronunciation. In addition, we review and focus on other essential readiness skills that are needed which include following direction, participation in small and large group settings, sharing, social skills, proper choices, consequences, self help skills, ability to stay on task, self confidence, problem solving and independence.

VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten Program)

Florida’s Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Program is designed to prepare four-year-olds for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. All children who turn 4-years-old on or before September 1st and reside in Florida are eligible to attend a VPK program. We are now accepting VPK certificates for the next calendar school year. Your child will receive kindergarten readiness through fun play experiences and hands on activities. Our VPK curriculum supports the Florida School Readiness and Florida VPK standards, which mirror the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s guidelines. Our VPK teachers hold the formal education credentials to teach VPK. Through facilitated play and structured activities our staff creates meaningful experiences and an enthusiasm for learning. Our teachers delight in the growth and development of every child.
