OUR PRogram 

In addition to learning through play, our centre offers an 'In House' Pre-school Program to all the children at no additional cost. The Mother Goose Time program provides age-appropriate themes & child-directed learning. For younger children (toddlers, 2 years old) Little Goose lesson plan simplifies the Mother Goose Time activities so that children of all levels can learn & play together. Early literacy & numeracy skills are taught through music, art & drama as well as creative instruction.  We provide child friendly ‘Progress Assessments’ two times each a year so parents & children can celebrate as developmental & academic milestones are mastered. Monthly newsletters keep parents informed as to upcoming events & themes. The Mother Goose Time program is offered every day. 

The learning objectives of the activities featured in the Mother Goose Time are:

  • Social Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Language & Literacy Development

nature, outdoor Play & Physical Literacy 

At Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre, we strongly believe in the importance of Outdoor Play & how it contributes to learning & raising healthy & happy children. The outdoors is the best place for children to practice & master different skills. It is outdoors that children can fully & freely explore & experience motor skills such as running, leaping & jumping.  Additionally, it is in the outdoors that children are likely to burn the most calories, which helps prevents many future health problems. The outside is also important because the outdoor light stimulates the pineal gland, the part of the brain that regulates the "biological clock," is vital to the immune system, and makes us feel happier. Outdoor Play also enhance Cognitive and social/emotional development. Outside, children are more likely to invent games. As they do, they're able to express themselves and learn about the world in their own way. They feel safe and in control, which promotes autonomy, decision-making, and organizational skills. Inventing rules for games (as preschoolers like to do) promotes an understanding of why rules are necessary. Although the children are only playing to have fun, they're learning

  • communication skills and vocabulary (as they invent, modify, and enforce rules).
  • number relationships (as they keep score and count)

In our program we will be spending a lot of time outside to explore, learn & play throughout the day. If possible and weather permitting, we will carry our program outside.
