Our Curriculum

The BRIGHT Curriculum was specifically designed for Color Me Bright Preschool. It emphasizes the importance of activating the WHOLE BODY to create new understanding of the traditional learning concepts. This creative approach to learning is research-based and proven to enhance

the OVERALL DEVELOPMENT of the child (physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally).

 

Our curriculum is implemented to meet the goals of the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards through weekly art, music, drama, and creative movement lessons. All of the skills and knowledge needed for Kindergarten will be developed in a more creative and immersive manner. During creative activity, the whole brain is activated, therefore increasing cognitive learning and communication.
