BrightPath Early Learning Program Overview

 

The BrightPath Academy Curriculum was designed using the latest research into early childhood learning and development. It not only exceeds the provincial Early Learning Framework standards and the provincial Kindergarten Curriculum expectations, it incorporates a strong academic approach while recognising the significance of play and sets children on a quest for meaningful learning experiences full of joy, enthusiasm and empathy.

The program will highlight key literacy and numeracy skills required for future academic success by exposing the children to an environment dedicated to supporting their learning and exploration of the world around them. The focus will be on developing each child’s independence and self-confidence under the careful guidance and leadership of a well-qualified team of educators.

Every learning space will incorporate distinctive learning materials, with each item specifically selected to support the child’s interest and learning. Music, movement and creative arts will also be an integral part of the daily learning experience.

At BrightPath Academy, we will be offering Yoga, French, Music and a Green Program/Gardening.

Biodiversity and sustainability (BP Green Program) are incorporated into our daily planning.

The Green Program is designed to develop a deep connection with the natural world. It focuses on the importance of sharing the planet, fostering environmental stewardship and offers rich sensory stimulation.

 

Infant Curriculum

The BrightPath Infant Academy Curriculum draws on the latest scientific research into early childhood brain development to create a supportive, nurturing learning environment for the infants in our care. The infant Academy curriculum starts at birth and continues until 18 months of age.

This unique program provides support in five key developmental domains: language, cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. A key component of this is the “Serve and Return” dynamic between the educator and the infant which is crucial in supporting the infant as they learn to interact with others and begin responding to verbal and non-verbal cues. Educators work with infants in fostering trust, independence, motor development, and early sounds etc.  In this unique program children feel safe, loved and confident as they build a strong foundation for future learning.

 

Toddler Curriculum

Our Toddler program is for ages 18 to 30 months. It focuses on the continued refinement of social emotional skills, specifically, self-regulation. This is an important element and the children are supported as they learn to identify and manage their feelings. Strong daily routines, enhanced curriculum and rich environments offer concrete experiences that provide a foundation for future learning as the children move on to exploring more abstract concepts. Small group and individual lessons are offered throughout the day providing opportunities to assimilate knowledge and refine skills.

 

Pre-School Curriculum

The daily routine in our pre-school rooms will be structured to ensure that each child benefits from a robust academic program. The program combines multi-disciplinary learning with an inquiry embedded play approach. The focus in our pre-k rooms will be on developing, refining and supporting key literacy and numeracy skills with an emphasis on discovery, imaginative play and exploration, creative arts, cosmic and continent studies and small worlds.

Through a unique reading program, specific to BrightPath Academy, we will provide opportunities for the children to develop their early phonetic understanding, reading skills, literacy and comprehension.

Teaching opportunities will be capitalised on throughout the day. Our Academy Curriculum will enable the educators to support each child and empower them to be involved in designing and directing their own learning. Diversity in styles of learning, cultures, needs and interests, will be celebrated.

Our well-qualified and trained teaching teams will offer each child an individual program tailored to their needs. This will enable each child to work at their own pace guided by the teacher. Individual and small group lessons will focus on social, emotional development, STEM and international mindedness, as well as becoming environmentally responsible citizens. This combination of academic learning and social-emotional development is exclusive to our Academy Curriculum and is crucial in ensuring a natural and seamless transition into grade school and beyond.
