Bright Future Child Care (BFCC) is an award winning program! In 2021 and 2024 we were awarded "Best Child Care" by the families of Brooklyn Park in the annual Sun Post Readers Choice Awards. BFCC is licensed through Hennepin County, offering a developmentally appropriate, learning environment for all children. We cultivate the brilliance in each child through hands on exploration of our focus areas; Academics, The Arts, Culture and Community. Specifically influenced by the developmental-interaction approach and our accredited curriculum we procure a method of engaging in our focus areas, implementing the MN ECIPs, and achieving growth determined by fall, winter and spring assessmen
Our curriculum Funshine Express is Parent Aware rated and recommended. The benefits of Funshine Express include parent information about content and helpful hints, differentiation methods within in the lesson plans, and an assessment procedure aimed in relaying the information easily to families. The children will grow developmentally in these specific areas: reasoning, decision-making, problem solving, creativity, self-esteem, and emotional, cognitive, social, and physical development.
In addition to Funshine Express we supplement learning with Your Baby Can Learn! programming, especially to our toddlers, who will benefit highly from this method of learning. This focus on multi-sensory application is vital to motor skills and cognitive development. According to the research from Your Baby Can Learn! we will continue to place an emphasis on the levels of neuroplasticity in younger children. Research shows early exposure to language is suggested to improve the number of words a child can speak at age 3, which is a strong predictor of how many words a child can understand at age 11.
Screening is a brief, simple procedure used to identify potential health or developmental problems in infants and young children who may need a health assessment, diagnostic assessment or educational evaluation. Screening in early childhood supports children's readiness for kindergarten and promotes health and development. Screening includes vision and hearing, height and weight, immunization review, large and small muscles, thinking, language and communication skills, as well as social and emotional development.
“School readiness involves more than just children. In the broadest sense, school readiness is about children, families, early environments, schools, and communities. Children are not innately “ready” or “not ready” for school. Their skills and development are strongly influenced by their families and through their interactions with other people and environments before coming to their child, and maintains a positive home-to-school connection.”
“A community that is ready to support its children ensures access to health care, provides quality childcare and early education, and invests in resources for families.”
“School readiness occurs when children have the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for success in primary school, later learning, and life. Physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development are essential ingredients of school readiness. School readiness refers not only to ready children, but to ready communities, families, and schools.“
