The physical environment, both indoors and outdoors, plays a major part in the delivery of our program at Bright Sparks. We endeavour to create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere where children, families’ and staff feel a sense of belonging. We run indoor/outdoor self-directed play time for large blocks of time during the day in both the Starlight Room and the Rainbow Room. During this time the children choose to work/play spontaneously on their own, in a small group or take part in a teacher initiated activity that has been planned as part of the day.
To encourage children to develop skills in all developmental areas – social/emotional, cognitive, language, physical – and school readiness, we have the indoor environment set up with a variety of learning areas.
