Bright Beginnings Preschool
Run as a parent co-op, Bright Beginnings Preschool, a secular program located on the grounds of Journey Church, involves pupils' guardians in every aspect of youthful education. A cadre of energetic teachers lead classroom activities and provide continuity, and volunteer parents play backup by coming into the classroom to help on a rotating schedule. This involvement lets them bond with their kids and learn about early-childhood development while supporting teachers during games and art projects. Monthly meetings and a committee further integrate parents into the school, giving them the opportunity to discuss changes in the curriculum and plan for the school's future.
