Step into a Bright Beginnings classroom and you will see brightly-colored children’s artwork covering the walls, an inviting book and reading area and different learning areas in each classroom. You will find highly-qualified and caring teachers who understand the special needs of children living in homeless environments and work diligently and patiently to support their learning and developmental progress.
Bright Beginnings realizes the importance of a fun, creative and nurturing learning environment with unique learning opportunities that support children’s growth. We incorporate the award-winning High/Scope curriculum in our classrooms to ensure that children are well prepared to meet important child development milestones and enter kindergarten ready to read and ready to learn. Our High/Scope curriculum helps each child make progress on key developmental domains such as language development; literacy, math, science, creative arts, social emotional development, approaches to learning; and physical health and development. These are key skills for kindergarten readiness.
Bright Beginnings selected High/Scope because of its documented track record in helping young children from chaotic environments develop early self-reliance and learning techniques. Bright Beginnings offers homeless children a consistent group of caring adults and friends to learn with them, play with them and explore the world with them inside and outside the classroom. Our educational curriculum includes field trips that expose children to new experiences and special art, music, environmental and science programs that enrich and reinforce what children are learning in the classrooms.
