The story behind Bright Horizons emergent curriculum

What happens when a toddler tells his teacher he loves cheetahs? Or a pre-kindergarten student asks what dinosaurs eat? At Bright Horizons®, those questions spark learning opportunities and lessons in math, reading, science, art…and more. Watch the video to see teachers and parents talk about this very unique approach toward curriculum, and how a child's very own interests become the launch pad for curiosity... and a lifetime love of learning.

Letter Hunt

You Will Need:

Square pieces of paper with each letter of the alphabet on them, tape

Directions:

Tape the letters to the wall in different places in the house. Sit in one room and have your child find and retrieve the letter that you call out (if you have more than one child, let them take turns).

Tip:

To add more of a challenge, don't let your child see you where you hide the letters.
