Our Core Values

Bright Child is an Eco-Friendly Montessori School that strives to sustain the planet with our business practices and in the way we educate your children. While we are primarily a child care centre, Bright Child also offers a safe and healthy learning environment for your precious little ones. Our goal here is to nurture the curiosity, creativity,and imagination born within each child. We approach each child as an individual while inspiring a passion for excellence and a lifelong love of learning.

The Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education is designed to help the children to help themselves. They are encouraged to develop the fullness of their individual human potential through independence, inner discipline and discovery. It is our objective to provide your children with the structure, groundwork, knowledge and social skills to successfully move into their future.

Levels of Programming

To meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of a child, Bright Child offers a variety of programs all based on the theory and works of Dr. Maria Montessori. All programming includes a healthy meal program made from scratch, music and movement, french, and children’s yoga.

Infant Program

Dr. Montessori’s philosophies are followed which stress the importance of allowing infants to move freely in their environment. Gross and fine motors are developed. Tactile, visual, and cognitive senses are stimulated using a wide range of materials. Baby sign language is taught and encouraged until they develop the ability to use sound.

KinderCasa Program

18 to 30 months

As infants become toddlers, they begin to gain more independence in their environment. We help them by focusing on self-help skills such as toileting, dressing, courtesy, and continued language development. We also provide the children the necessary tools to develop friendship and respect with their teachers, peers, and their environment.
