Bright Star’s Philosophy
We truly live by our motto: “…every child is a BRIGHT STAR on the horizon of tomorrow.”
These formative years are the most crucial in every child’s life. Therefore, the most important part of our program is guiding each child in building a solid foundation of self-esteem and confidence, responsibility and maturity. Good social habits, friendliness, kindness, cooperation and communication will develop as well.
When a child is treated with respect, they learn to respect themselves and others.
We are dedicated to giving your child the individual attention, approval and affection that he or she needs to build this foundation for a happy and successful future! Our goal is a child who will say, “I LIKE BEING ME!”
We believe in providing our children with a safe and nurturing program that will focus on the whole child and the needs of each individual. Bright Star Academy strives to model and teach respect and tolerance to all that pass through our school and to make sure every child and family feels supported, valued, and protected.
We believe in maximizing a child's capacity to envision the world around them with kindness, compassion and an acceptance to all people. We appreciate and value different family, cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds. We believe in the role of a school and our educators to guide our children and families to make positive influence in the classroom, community and society.
Bright Star Academy provides our children with rich experiences that are open ended and children are challenged to use this to form a foundation to build upon. Bright Star Academy believes in trial and error, the importance of persistence and problem solving. Children are guided to use critical thinking skills to form ideas and create a lifelong curiosity of learning.
Bright Star Academy uses art, music, movement, literature, math, science, hands on learning experiences, small, large, and individual group activities to promote the social emotional development, cognitive, language, physical development and health in young children.
