For the Months of June, July, and August:

Since Bright Beginnings is a year-round preschool, the routines of the day continue, including weekly teacher-led learning activities each day. The only significant difference is that we venture out on neighborhood walks more with the four and five-year-old youngsters during these months. We provide a Wednesday/Thursday afternoon safe water activity each week. We utilize our greenway above the preschool for races and ball fun.

We begin these activities the week after public schools are out, which usually falls on the third week of June. Children shall bring and leave a swimsuit here (including water shoes) for water fun activities. We use water tubs for play and sprinklers to assure the parents that our fun water activities are safe.

We are proud to showcase many pictures of our children delighting in our fun activities. If you wish to check out each of them, we invite you to visit our online photo gallery.
