Bright Beginnings Port Orange Preschool offers very flexible preschool hours

School Times

We are open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We would like the children to be in class by 8:45 a.m. We begin our circle time near this time. If you are going to be later than 11:00 a.m., you will need to bring you child in at 2:30 p.m. Bringing a child in at 11:00 a.m. is difficult on the teacher and the child because this is lunch and nap time.

Bright Beginnings Port Orange Preschool offers Christian based curriculum

The Bible curriculum we use is based on the Beginnerís Bible and the Abeka Series. Stories, memory verses, fun songs and Bible crafts are some of the wonderful things that make up this curriculum. Our academic curriculum is a develop-mentally appropriate program that fulfills needs and appreciates the differences of individual children. It provides a balance of child initiated and teacher-focused activities; active & quiet activities; and group and individual activities. We use a combination of the Creative Curriculum, the Abeka Book Curriculum, and additional supplementary material may be used to enrich these curricula. We choose a few themes every month along with special activities to integrate into the curriculum.
