WE ARE HIRING!
Bright Futures Learning Center has openings for two teachers and two teacher assistants. Candidates must have a degree in early childhood or a related field. Please forward your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews will be conducted soon.
We are pleased to announce that six of our teachers are now Montessori Certified! This additional education brings a wealth of new teaching philosophies to our center and helps to enhance our quality curriculum.
Check out what we will be learning this month!
-This months theme is From Seeds to Plants! In this unit students will be discovering three main topics; Parts of a Plant, What Plants Need, and The Life Cycle of a Plant. We will explore seeds by visual and sensorial aspects noting how they are the same and how they differ. Students will be able to observe both real and fake flowers dissecting them to discover the parts of the plant. Sensory bins with seeds, beans, potting fake flowers, gardening, and much more will be utilized.
-Students will be introduced to the letters Bb and Ww and the sounds that they make. Bright Futures uses the Sounds In Motion Program to reinforce the letters and sounds through movements. The color white, the number ten, and the shape crescent or moon are also the focus for the month.
-Miss Sally from the Gloversville Free Public Library will be visiting us on Thursday, May 23rd to share stories and lead us in a craft for our Habitat theme.
-80’s Day will be held on Friday, May 24th. Come dressed with all your 80’s flair! Big hair, neon colors, jelly shoes, and whatever creative things you can come up with. We are looking forward to a fantastically fun day in the 80’s!
-Monday May 27th Bright Futures will be closed in observation of Memorial Day! Please have a safe and happy holiday.
