Preschool Program: 3-4 years
Our Preschool/Kindergarten Program is designed to help prepare your child for Kindergarten. Although the age groups share the same building, each age group is challenged at a different educational level to ensure that they will not only succeed in a school aged environment, but will achieve mastery level skills in letter recognition, sequencing, sight words, hand writing and social development. Our curriculum offers structured learning as well as gives your child the opportunity to grow independently as they learn by center based education and free play. Our Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten program also teaches your child life learning skills as we focus on helping our community through service learning projects and community service.
For those children who are not in need of full time care, Bright Beginnings also offers a Preschool only program from 9:00-12:00, Monday-Friday, to help your preschooler prepare for Kindergarten. In this program, your child is integrated in with the full time Preschool/Kindergarten Program enrollees and includes all of the same educational based curriculum offered to our full time students. Our Preschool only program will not be open on days that the Enfield Public School system will be closed or on snow days. The tuition will remain the same as these dates have been factored on our charge.
Before and After School Program: 5-12 years

Those children who are enrolled in our Before and After School Program also have the opportunity to attend full days of school during snow days and school vacations if care is needed.
