Bright Beginnings, an inclusive preschool program for children ages 3-5 teaches skills that serve as a foundation for future life success. Our purpose is to assure that young children, who are at various stages of developmental growth, demonstrate a passion for learning as they progress academically and socially. We believe learning is best facilitated in this age group through hands-on, interactive experiences that engage and challenge early learners.
