Preschool Program

Welcome to Brightside Academy’s preschool program! Our preschool classrooms provide everything your child needs for continued growth and preparation for a key transition – entering kindergarten at the end of the program. Our preschoolers receive free meals and get the benefits of a school readiness curriculum.

During the year we bring in special guests to read or teach something new to our children. Some of our guests have included community leaders, local farms, local police or fire departments, soccer workshops and more.

Your Preschooler’s Day

In preschool the focus is on learning and preparation for school.  Your child’s day is filled with fun learning activities, circle time, indoor and outdoor playtime, group meals, quiet activities, and rest time. Through individual or small groups, children are guided to interest areas.  They explore reading, songs, writing, math, science with their teacher.

Sponsored Education Programs

Brightside Academy is proud to partner with state-sponsored initiatives to offer additional early education programs. Below is a list of the programs we offer. These programs vary by state and location. Check the locations page to find out specific programs offered by your preferred academy.

Communication with Parents

At the end of the day you receive a daily report with a summary of your child’s day. The sheet provides specific information on

  • Amount of food they ate
  • Amount of sleep they had
  • School readiness progress in five developmental areas
  • Learning activities your child participated in during the day
  • Important reminders or other information

Transition to Kindergarten and Graduation

As time approaches for your child to graduate from preschool, many of our sites offer transition workshops with information on how to register for kindergarten. Some even partner with local school districts and schools to help you prepare for this step.

Preschool graduation is an exciting time for you and your child. Our locations take time to celebrate this milestone with your family at the end of summer. This is the perfect time to begin thinking about any before and after school care needs once your child attends school. Brightside Academy is proud to offer our communities before and after school care at most of our locations.

Every child is special and we take pride in providing the care and experiences your preschooler needs to appropriately transition into school.
