About the Provider

Description: We take great pride in the programs we teach here at Bright Eyes. We feel that learning takes place at all ages and that all children need to be challenged to reach their full learning potential. We strive to make learning fun and enjoyable as well as structured and stimulating. Our infant, toddler and two year old programs follow the Creative Curriculum. Our teachers are committed to making your child feel welcome and motivated to learn new things. Our teachers make their own lesson plans that are approved by the director to ensure that the teachings are appropriate per age group. The children follow the same daily routine each day to help the children understand repetition. The children in these classrooms will do circle time, story time, arts and crafts, sign language and so much more. Your probably thinking, all this with infants too? Yes, we feel that this helps the children with social and cognitive skills to be included in each activity. All children get to go outside on weather permitting days and when the weather is not so nice, our teachers plan activities to do indoors to keep the children motivated and active.
