Simply put, children learn through play. And, Bright&Early takes play very seriously! Your child will be given countless opportunities to engage in fun activities that challenge their creative spirit and result in achieving their personal best. At our child care center your child’s day will be full of wonder, exploration and discovery!


Observations and Assessments

Each teacher plans and implements an age-appropriate Learning Experience Plan for the children in their classroom based on individual curriculum for their age program. Teachers also take into consideration each individual child’s development by reviewing child observation records. Teachers give careful thought to each child’s needs and take advantage of “teachable moments.” 

Learning Experience Plans outline upcoming activities such as circle time, songs, stories, art projects, science experiments, music & movement classes, outdoor games, dramatic play and much more!

Activities focus on children’s personal & social development, physical development, cognitive development and creative expression. Learning Experience Plans are reviewed and approved by the director and posted in each classroom on the Parent Info Board.

At Bright&Early, our goal is to provide high quality child care and to set your child up for success, offering learning activities that encourage your child to move forward developmentally at their own pace. We know that children learn through play. We also believe that "childhood is a journey...not a race." We want your child's experience at Bright&Early to be a wonderful foundation for a lifetime of learning.
