Philosophy

At Brighton Academy, we believe each child is a unique individual. The staff is sensitive to the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of all children. Developmentally appropriate programs are provided to focus on the process of learning while also helping children enjoy many other successful experiences. We encourage love of learning.

We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and child friendly. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Children have the opportunity to explore, to experience, and most importantly … to succeed.

The strength of our program is the experience, expertise, and dedication of our staff. We support the teachers with training, resources, and the freedom to create a unique learning environment. We provide many opportunities for the teacher to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere that fosters each child’s creativity and positive self-image.

We believe in positive methods of discipline. We establish consistent and appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We strive to strengthen each child’s own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others.

Parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers – a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and center staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times.

Brighton Academy values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our employees. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us. We strive each day to provide the best early childhood educational services possible.
