Is my child a
Bright Learner?

At Bright Schoolhouse, we prioritize:

  • The curious and creative, with passion and interest in art, music, academics, STEAM, nature, and various other intelligences.

  • The independent and self-directed, empowering them to explore new topics, pursue their special interests, and engage in self-paced curriculum as appropriate.

  • Those seeking to build a social community, who can collaborate, listen to others, and develop essential social skills.

  • Learners who can navigate successful transitions including those who use visual supports.

  • Students who approach learning with a positive, joyful, and enthusiastic attitude, even in the presence of challenges such as anxiety or sensory sensitivities.

  • The inquisitive and critical thinkers, who possess a natural inclination to ask questions, seek answers, and engage in intellectual exploration.

  • The empathetic and compassionate individuals, who demonstrate a strong sense of understanding, kindness, and respect towards others, while learning strategies to manage and express their emotions effectively.

  • Children with a growth mindset, who are resilient, persistent, and open to embracing challenges as opportunities for growth.

  • The innovative and problem-solving-oriented, who enjoy finding creative solutions to complex problems.

Does my child have to be all of these things?

Absolutely not! It is important to remember that no child is expected to possess all of these qualities or that this list was by any means inclusive. The list serves as a guideline to highlight the diverse range of qualities and characteristics we value in our Bright Learners. Each child is unique and brings their own strengths and areas for growth. Parents often come to us because they recognize these skills and qualities (or potential for) in their child and have found that their prospective or current setting may not be helping their child flourish in the way they know they can.

*A little hint

Those positive characteristics are composed of potential goal areas and many can be read in reverse. Before joining Bright Schoolhouse you may have noticed your child has challenges with emotional regulation, they are so creative they are bored at school without challenges, or you know you have a happy child but find they have a history of being anxious or shy.
