ABOUT BRIGHTON ACADEMY
Brighton Academy is an early educational learning environment that takes a traditional approach to child development. We are a small, private facility that is designed to give your child individual attention while attending to all facets of your child's growth; intellectual and physical.
A child who completes a three to five year cycle at Brighton Academy will be constantly challenged, and well prepared to enter elementary school. We use an advanced curriculum and provide a specialized prekindergarten program that is designed to keep children educated beyond state standards. Staff members are educated, CPR trained, and screened for criminal history and drug use. We take pride in the education and environment that we provide for our students.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Both of my daughters have been at Brighton Academy since they were ten weeks old. I couldn’t imagine sending them anywhere else. Brighton has been and continues to be like a second family to us. I don’t have enough words to express how wonderful Amanda and the staff are. Brighton will always have a special place in our heart. "
At Brighton Academy, we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of child development and education. We know that each child grows and learns at their own pace and we strive to provide individualized support for each unique child in our care. Our approach seeks to educate the whole child by encouraging their growth in all areas of academic, physical, and social and emotional growth.
Our educators are extensively trained in several curriculum models, including Applebaum, Playful Learning, and the Montessori Methods. We use developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) as we strive to meet each child at his/her developmental level. Our goal is to provide the support and encouragement that they need to reach their full developmental potential.
Our educators are trained to develop individualized learning plans for each child that includes: Scientific knowledge and discovery, Life skills development and self help skills, Literacy awareness and phonics recognition, Mathematical skills and reasoning, Music appreciation and enrichment, and creative expression. A child who completes a 5-year cycle at Brighton Academy is challenged each day and encouraged to grow, learn, and explore. You can rest assured that upon graduation from our Pre-k program, your child will be fully prepared for a lifetime of learning and more than ready to face kindergarten and beyond.
**Our prekindergarten program is based around the entrance standards of all area elementary schools and integrated with our daily curriculum. Upon graduation from Brighton Academy students are equipped with all educational and physical development skills required for success in their next educational level.
