Montessori

Educational aids in the montessori

At the heart of our curriculum is love. Love, along with a deep understanding of the individual educational and emotional needs of each child, sets the Bright Beginnings Curriculum apart.

As demonstrated by the renowned psychologist, Jean Piaget, children learn best through play, so we’ve developed hands-on learning experiences for all levels of learners.

At Bright Beginnings preschool we use elements of various curriculums of learning including Montessori, High Scope and the *Aistear curriculum.
The Aistear curriculum has four main themes

Theme 1: Well-Being

The theme of well-being is about children being confident, happy and healthy.

Theme 2: Identity and Belonging

The theme of Identity and Belonging is about children developing a positive sense of who they are, and feeling that they are valued and respected as part of a family and community.

Theme 3: Communicating

The theme of communicating is about children sharing their experiences, thoughts, ideas and feelings with others with growing confidence and competence in a variety of ways and for a variety of purposes.

Theme 4: The theme of Exploring and Thinking

The theme of Exploring and Thinking is about children making sense of the things, places and people in their world by interacting with others, playing, investigating, questioning, and forming testing and refining ideas.

*Aistear is the outcome of many years of research consultation, planning and development by the national council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) in partnership with the early childhood sector in Ireland and abroad

Our Christmas concert and Summer Graduation Ceremony are the highlights of the preschool year.

It is natural for you to wonder about your child after they have been dropped off at day care. How many times have you wanted to be a fly on the wall to get a peek at what they were doing? Now you can, thanks to Bright Beginnings Video Over the Internet system. You can now stay in touch with your child visually any time of the day, anywhere you have access to a computer.
