Expanding on our Services
One of the hardest things a parent must do after completing their maternity/paternity leave is finding the right care for their newborn child. At MBB, we understand how challenging this is for families. Our staff goes above and beyond to ensure that our infants are given the love they need to flourish in the absence of their parents/guardians.
Our infant teachers provide stimulating activities to encourage development and growth. Our teachers create a sensory-rich environment with soft places for our infants to roll, pull up, crawl, and of course explore all the new and exciting surroundings.
In a regular day in our infant class, you will hear teachers singing and reading to the children to start encouraging these habits as they are developing their own habits. In a clean and loving environment, our teachers provide the individual care your infant needs.
Young toddlers are busy explorers, always on the go! They are taking steps to explore the wider world around them. They are introduced to new materials to encourage their creativity and interest in the senses. Our young toddler teachers provide an environment that encourages your little one to explore new things and take safe risks as they navigate the world through movement and experiencing new materials. Our teachers offer love and encouragement to our young toddlers as they meet new milestones and make great strides.
Older Toddlers are running, jumping, laughing, and exploring. In our toddler classes, teachers use children’s natural curiosity to engage them in learning about their world. Play becomes a natural environment for developing appropriate and effective communication skills. During their daily circle time and multi-sensory activities, older toddlers are preparing for preschool through alphabet, music and art exploration. The older toddler teachers focus on encouraging language development and analytical skills as well as encouraging healthy potty training.
Preschoolers learn by experiencing and doing. In our preschool class, you will observe students exploring life skills centers, such as, a grocery store, a bank, a school, camping, publishing company or musical exploration. Teachers probe to find out what draws children’s interest and create an environment around these interests. Our preschool teachers focus on promoting sense of self and encourage responsibility through jobs.

MBB KR program provides our 4-5 year old’s with the foundation they will need to be successful in kindergarten, including early reading/writing skills, age-appropriate math competence, and social/emotional readiness. In KR, our children learn sight word recognition and basic mathematical concepts. Our program also focuses on the importance of social and emotional skills such as listening, understanding our own feelings and those around us. Our program gives children the skills they need to embark on their kindergarten and school path.
Regardless of which program the children are in, Gross motor play is a vital element of children’s physical and emotional well-being.
At My Bright Beginnings, children have the opportunity to run, jump and explore every day. We follow the “Weather Permitting Conditions” set by PA Keys, which requires that children are taken outdoors daily as long as the temperature is above 25 degrees, below 90 degrees (taking into account wind chill and heat index), there are no air quality alerts and no active precipitation.
For poor weather days, we offer indoor gross motor play areas for our children, equipped with slides, ladders, balance beams and push toys for children to jump, climb and explore. Nearby Marian Anderson Recreation Center (740 South 17th Street) and Rittenhouse Square (18th and Walnut Streets) provide ideal spaces for outdoor fun at our Graduate Hospital location. In Fishtown, we utilize nearby Palmer Park (Frankford Ave. and E. Palmer St.) and Shissler Recreation Center (1800 Blair Street) as opportunities for exploring the outdoor world.
