Pre-K Class

(4-5 years old, must be 4 by October 1st)

Description-Welcome to our Pre-K Class!

In their last year at Bright Future, our goal is to have your child prepared to academically succeed in Kindergarten. We strive to build their confidence and independence before heading off to their new school, next year.  We focus on reading, writing and math readiness as well as there listening skills and ability to follow directions.

Pre-K class curriculum goals

Please keep in mind that each child will develop and grow at his/her own pace both physically and developmentally. Bright Future's curriculum is based on differentiated instruction in order to fill the needs of all our children.

For all children learning and living is the same thing. If they feel secure, treasured, loved, their own energy and curiosity will bring them new understanding and new skills.

We are excited to see what they do each and every day.
