We recognize that a successful early education program must enable the development of children’s academic and physical skills, as well as promote their social and emotional growth. Our program offers a well-rounded approach designed to allow children to use their natural curiosity to explore and learn from their environment, their teachers, and their peers. Our curriculum aims to provide the structure that is fundamental to children’s ability to focus and learn, in a nurturing and exciting environment that both feeds on and draws from our students’ individual personalities and multi-cultural backgrounds.
The world is as many times new as there are children in our lives.

Our Goals and Objectives
Bright Beginnings NYC makes it its mission to instill in our students the self-confidence necessary to seek out new experiences. Recognizing that play is a critical factor in all facets of a child’s early development, we follow a play-based, creative learning curriculum that focuses on the five primary developmental domains that must be addressed in early childhood, and that shape nearly every aspect of a child’s life. Specifically, our program addresses the cognitive, emotional, social, adaptive and physical development of our students through carefully selected activities and tasks that promote independent learning and group interactive learning and foster:
- Language development
- Creative art development
- Math, science and reading foundations
- Sensory awareness through music and movement
- Manipulative exploration and coordination skills
- Fine and gross motor skills development
- Outdoor experiences and team playing
There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.
– Walt Streightiff
Bright Beginnings NYC is part of a vibrant, multi-cultural community and serves families with diverse backgrounds. Our teachers carefully choose activities that promote cultural awareness, and encourage children to explore and appreciate the beauty and nuances of living in a diversified environment like New York City. Preschool is a time when children begin to form their vision of the world, and we are here to ensure that the world our students envision is built on tolerance, understanding, and mutual respect.
Education, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of man, the balance-wheel of the social machinery.
