Bright Start of Colorado

Preschool and Childcare

 

At Bright Start, our staff is dedicated to helping your child build the best foundation for their future. We focus on pre-academics as well as the social and physical growth of every child. We believe that children should be nurtured and supported in their early childhood educational experience so they may obtain confidence and pride outside the home. Using Developmentally Appropriate Practices we meet each child at their current level and help build their foundation from there. We practice positive modeling, encouraging reinforcement, and consistent classroom rules. Parents are an integral part of the learning process, and we will work as a team to meet the needs of your children. We look forward to learning with you, because great futures begin with a Bright Start!

All About April

Our color unit was a huge success and so much fun! We are just as excited to begin our ocean unit. We will immerse ourselves into the ocean, fish, and fun. Get your swim on!

Ms. Jami, Ms. Debbie and Ms. Debbie

In April, we’ll see a transformation of our classroom into an amazing ocean. As the kids become oceanographers, they will learn the difference between fish and underwater mammals, the importance of salt water, and about many new creatures in the ocean. We will cover everything from stories to crafts in a month filled with special ocean themed snacks! We will also focus on number, letter, shape and color review.

March will be all about primary and secondary colors, rainbows and Dr. Seuss. The first few days will be filled with Seussical fun!
