Our Brightside Academy “Steps to Success” curriculum is developed in the science of child brain development. It is an integrated program of three nationally recognized learning curricula that prepares children to be ready for their academic lives by providing the cognitive, social and emotional baselines needed for learning.
Key components of “Steps to Success” include:
State-of-the-art child development and learning program, Monthly learning modules, Weekly lesson plans, Parent “Home Connections” program to complement home support, Child progress reports
Our program is based on the understanding that infants need dependable caregivers that will provide praise, attention, concern and care on a consistent basis. Infants are provided with opportunities to explore in a safe environment with caregivers that respond to the child’s emotional and intellectual needs.
Our toddler program offers a wide variety of interesting play experiences geared toward each child’s developmental level. Opportunities are provided for multi-sensory experiences aimed at delighting and inspiring curiosity. Independence is strongly encouraged at this stage in our program.
