Our Summer VPK Curriculum

Nemours BrightStart!, the first program of its kind in the nation, researches, develops and offers evidence based tools targeting young children at risk for reading failure. Our goal is to effectively instruct children at the very beginning of their reading journey to ensure long-term reading success.

The Nemours BrightStart! curriculum helps our teachers and VPK parents understand key concepts and actions needed to promote reading success for our children through a variety of specific tools, services and resources. We are very proud of the challenging and fun combination the Nemours Bright Start Curriculum offers. Preparing your child for reading success is less about giant leaps and more about the things we do daily.

Our VPK teachers, together with involved parents, are properly equipped to provide a bright start for your child. The earlier we find children at risk for reading problems and begin proper instruction, the better their outcomes. That’s what Rattles to Tassels Learning Center’s VPK Program and the Nemours BrightStart! curriculum is all about: helping every VPK child achieve his or her reading potential, for kindergarten and for life.!

Our professional VPK staff makes the Bright Start! learning program possible. Children in your VPK class work with original themed lesson pans and modules, designed to be fun and educational. Each child receives a great amount of individual attention to build self-esteem as they become successful in reading, writing, math through drama play, music and art. In addition, our VPK program prepares your child for kindergarten and elementary school by incorporating academic lessons in small group activities as well. We strive to offer the greatest learning experiences as we continue Setting the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Generation.
