BrightPath Studios offers premium programs for the whole family. We offer small class sizes led by passionate and enthusiastic instructors and most importantly – a fun & encouraging environment.
Instructors for BrightPath Studios are employed as BrightPath/Manotick Montessori staff, and follow the same prerequisites as regular early childhood program educators.
Early Readers: A strong base in early literacy is the best gift you can give your child. Our reading program assesses and creates individual programs for their success building confidence while reinforcing alphabet and sound recognition. The program teaches children the basic concepts of literacy to begin reading; strategies we use will include small group instruction, movement, fine motor skills and games. Your child will find their confidence and learn to love reading!
Junior Mathletes: Early Math allows kids to get started with Math practice in a fun way. It is ideal for children aged four to six years and is a wonderful way to get kids ready for preschool and kindergarten. They will work through early numeracy and learn math through play. Children will be taught basic math concepts using various curriculums to help them learn while playing and having fun through activities. The concepts include understanding size, shape, and patterns, ability to count verbally (first forward, then backward), recognizing numerals, identifying more and less of a quantity, understanding one-to-one correspondence etc.
Early Readers & Junior Mathletes classes are 12-week programs to increase your child’s skills in reading and math. Each class has a maximum of 8 spots and is 45 minutes long.
Dance: Our dance programs are based on multi-discipline dance style learning, a solid technique base while having fun and working on unique choreography. Our children learn the ever-important technical base for each style. We also believe that being a well-rounded dancer today means more than just learning the technique - there needs to be a deliberate focus on developing dance expression and individual style - the "wow" factor.
