HUSD expands preschool services for families
Bright Futures Preschool has been a part of the Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD) for over 20 years.
It started as one classroom and one Head Start classroom sharing a portable building on the Liberty Traditional Campus. In 1997, the preschool grew to two classrooms with a total enrollment that year of 54 students. The preschool at that time employed two teachers and four classroom aides. One of the two teachers was also the on-site preschool coordinator.
In 2008, Bright Futures Preschool (BFPS) moved to the HUSD district offices located on Robert Road. That year the preschool grew to three teachers with two aides in each classroom. Fast forward to 2018, and currently the preschool has four classrooms with a certified teacher and two aides in each classroom with a current enrollment of 142 students.
BFPS welcomes 2.9- to 5-year-olds who love to have fun and learn new things, no matter what their ability level. The preschool offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum, along with a full range of special needs services for exceptional children. Bright Futures Preschool is a loving, warm and nurturing place where each child develops skills in the areas of social/emotional, self-help, concepts, physical, and language skills according to individual readiness.
Bright Futures Preschool is committed to providing a high quality early childhood preschool experience for students and their families. The curriculum and teacher/child interaction go together to provide each child with an individual approach to learning. Program activities encourage exploration, problem solving, self-expression, and kindergarten readiness skills. Bright Futures is dedicated to creating a safe, fun and exciting place for children to succeed.
Starting in the 2018-19 school year Bright Futures preschool has been excited to offer an expansion to their program. This past August, BFPS added an Extended Preschool program that is offered from 6:30am to 5:30pm. Students participating in this program attend a preschool class with an early childhood certified teacher in the afternoon.
