Bright Ideas Childcare offers care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
Our infant program is structured around the individual needs of each baby. We give them the attention that they need and know when they are ready to try new skills. Infants are held, rocked, comforted and attended to whenever they need it, according to their individual schedule. Our infant room is a small cozy space, licensed for 3 infants ages 1 month to 15 months. We have one caregiver with them to meet their needs and be there for them every step of the way.
Our toddler room is a busy and fun room. We are licensed for 9 toddlers, from 15 months to 2 years 9 months. Toddlers tend to be active and free spirited. Our schedule and curriculum takes this into consideration. In the toddler room we encourage self-discovery, independence, exploration and learning through play. We recognize that each child is an individual and strive to provide an environment that enhances each child's development. Although it is important to have a plan, it is just as important to remain flexible. By remaining flexible we are ready and willing to deal with whatever is presented to us at any given moment.
Our Preschool program is designed to provide children with developmentally appropriate activities, materials and experiences to develop their Fine Motor Skills, Gross Motor Skills, Cognitive Development, Social and Emotional Development and Speech and Language Development. We offer a safe and nurturing environment where children can explore, experiment, manipulate and use their natural curiosities to solve problems and learn about the world around them. We present children with opportunities to develop their independence and boost their self-esteem to foster positive feelings toward learning.We offer a full day program designed for working parents and a 4 hour program for those interested in only the pre-school class time activities.
