    The Brighton Preschool/Parent Program (BPPP) has been a part of the District for over 60 years! Our preschool allows children to share and learn together in a safe and nurturing environment where each child is valued and accepted as a unique individual. The preschool curriculum provides creative opportunities for all children and encourages social development and increasing independence. Classroom activities and teacher interaction are designed to foster a sense of increasing competency, acquiring new skills, and language development by providing diverse opportunities for experimentation, which challenge thinking and reasoning abilities. Both large and small motor skills are developed through activities inside and outside the classroom. Parent involvement is an integral part of the program. On a rotating basis, a parent (or another family member/nanny) serves as a volunteer helper in the classroom. Families are responsible for doing so six or more times a year. This commitment to being a part of the classroom routine provides families with a strong foundation in developing home-to-school connections. Parents are encouraged to attend evening discussion groups addressing topics of interest, facilitated by the classroom teachers, program director, and guest speakers.

    Brighton Preschool/Parent Program is open to children who are three years old by December 1st of the enrollment year. A family registers their child for two, three, or four-day weekly attendance on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. or for two or three days on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday from 12:30 – 3:00 p.m. The preschool is located in a well-equipped classroom on the first floor of the District’s Central Administration Building, 2035 Monroe Avenue, Rochester, NY 14618. The program follows the Brighton Central School District calendar and is closed when the District is closed for holidays, recess periods, and emergency school closings.
