Our Philosophy

“Sparking Learning and Discovery”

Aside from being vetted by early childhood development experts prior to publishing, much of our product development decisions line up with Constructivist Theory, put forward primarily by Dewey, Vgotsky, and Piaget.

Piaget indicated that the challenge is to identify content that intrigues children and arouses in them a need and desire to figure something out. Interest is central to spontaneous mental actions by which the child constructs knowledge, intelligence, and personality.

Constructivists are constantly observing, asking, and offering an appropriately challenging curriculum to spark the children’s learning and discovery.

Silly Basket from the Bright and Beyond Preschool (ages 3-5) deck
Cut a piece of paper into ten or more 1” x 4” strips, and write down an action on each one. For example, “Wiggle and jiggle!” “Stand on one foot!” “Count to 10 as fast as you can!” or “Sing a silly song!” Fold up these pieces of paper, place them in a small basket, and let your child select one. Read it to her and let her be silly! Then she can choose again!
