Building core concepts skills at a young age is essential. With studies showing that about one third of children’s intellectual skills will be developed by age six, it is important to increase your young child’s exposure to a variety of experiences. Learning through play, students in the Bright Kids Summer Preschool Program will develop their understanding of core concepts. While this program is a great head start for children looking to eventually take the OLSAT, Stanford Binet, or ERB exams, it’s also a great academic enrichment program.
This program will be running from June 4, 2012 through August 31, 2012. Families can choose to enroll their child (aged 3.5-4.5) into one of the four scheduling options:
o Mon/Wed Morning session (10a-12p)
o Mon/Wed Afternoon session (1-3p)
o Tues/Thurs Morning session (10a-12p)
o Tues/Thurs Afternoon session (1-3p)
While some children will attend our class all summer, parents do have the option to sign up for a minimum of three weeks’ instruction throughout the course of the summer. Children are accepted on a first come, first served basis, and all classes are held at Bright Kids’ downtown Manhattan location.
Children enrolled in the preschool summer program will learn to form relationships with their peers and teacher within a fun and creative atmosphere. Games and manipulatives selected for this program are chosen for their educational value. Children will be encouraged to ask questions and to explore how to solve various problems and logical games. With a maximum class size of four students, teachers can provide individualized and ready feedback to guide your child during this period of self-discovery.
During these sessions children will be exposed to a mix of academic, creative, and movement based activities. Some activities they may work on include singing songs to develop phonics, creating pieces of art that stress color and shape recognition, and learning dance moves that stress body part recognition. Development of fine motor skills will be targeted through tracing and drawing activities. Finally, children will begin to develop literacy and math awareness through exposure to printables and various hands-on resources.
All teachers in this program are certified and either former or current early childhood teachers. Daily session reports are provided online to update parents on the activities and progress of their child. The rate of the program is $200 per week, and parents can look to make a bulk purchase of sessions, or arrange for a timely payment plan for tuition.
