What Programs Are Offered At Brighton Center?

Early Childhood Education Program (ECE)

Brighton Center's Early Childhood Education Program (ECE) provides an inclusive, nationally accredited, kindergarten readiness preschool for children, from 6 weeks to age five. The program prepares children with the academic, social, and developmental skills needed to be ready to successfully enter kindergarten. The Plrogram focuses on early literacy, ,ath, speech, and language acquisition skills, social skills (i.e. communication & problem solving), and life skills for school success. Brighton classes include: Infant (ages 5 weeks to 12 months old); Toddler (ages 12 months to 18 months old); Transition (ages 18 months to 2.5 years old); Pre K-1 (ages 2.5 to 3.5 years old); Pre K-2 (ages 3 to 4 years old); Kinder Ready (ages 4 to 5 years old).

Early Childhood Intervention Services

Early intervention services help young children with disabilities achieve their goals in cognitive, social/emotional, communicative, adaptive and physical development. Through a team approach, children and their families are given the education, tools, strategies and services they need to help them reach their maximum potential. Services may include occupational therapy to help an infant learn to hold her bottle, physical therapy to help her learn to roll over, or speech therapy to help her learn to eat. Most early intervention services take place in the home or, in the case of working parents, at child care facilities in the local community.

Special Education Support Services

Parent involvement is the cornerstone of every child’s success. But without the right knowledge and tools, parents might not realize all the opportunities they can help provide to their child to set them up for a successful future. At Brighton, they provide an array of educational sessions that teach parents about the importance of their child’s environment, how to engage in appropriate discipline, effective communication strategies and how to work with the educational system to ensure your child’s educational needs are being met.
