Our preschool program believes in the Montessori philosophy and follows Montessori teaching methods at its core, while keeping abreast with the best teaching practices from all over the world. Therefore while children work in a prepared environment with minimal assistance from the adult, they are also exposed to various experiences, which align itself with our holistic approach to education. At Bright Beginnings we follow a thematic approach that knits various areas of the curriculum together. A creative art and craft program, a lively music and movement program and a nurturing gardening program are fully in place to support our holistic approach to education. The school has adopted UNESCO's Living Values Education Program (LVEP) in order to impart to our children timeless universal values such as peace, love, respect, responsibility, happiness, cooperation, honesty, humility, tolerance, simplicity and unity. This unique approach prepares the child emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically for a smooth transition into first grade, be it a primary Montessori environment or a traditional school any where in the world Children are admitted from 2 and half years to three years of age.
