Classrooms

The small class size and flexible curriculum at Bright Ideas allow each child to develop to his or her maximum potential through individualized attention. We place children in classrooms according to their age, ensuring that each classroom curriculum is age-appropriate and effective.

Each age group has specific exit skills that we expect children to meet before entering the next classroom. These are minimal expectations for growth in self-help, social skills, gross and fine motor, language arts and math. Your child’s teacher will use this profile at parent conferences to share information regarding your child’s growth in each area of development. Bright Ideas meets the Early Learning Standards recommended by the Rhode Island Department of Education.
