Bright Horizons attending international forum to share pioneering Early Years wellbeing curriculum

Early Years experts from childcare provider Bright Horizons will be attending the World Forum on Early Care and Education in Orlando, Florida, US, this month and sharing details of Bright Horizons’ innovative Bright Beginnings curriculum.

Bright Beginnings was introduced to Bright Horizons nursery settings in England in 2020 and focuses on children’s emotional wellbeing as the key to successful learning. Based on extensive pedagogical theory and research, the curriculum is designed to acknowledge the individual voice and needs of each child to promote confidence, wellbeing and a genuine love for learning. It also focuses on the significance of the adult role as educators.
