Bright & Beyond Educational Materials

All activities rely on the use of common, around-the-house items, kitchen supplies, and a few toys, and it‘s very easy to substitute in similar items for things you may not have at hand. Plus, activities are all developmentally-appropriate and practice skills that children are normally learning at that age in a fun, hands-on way. Although most activities would work best at home, there are a few you can “take with you” on the road as well. As an added bonus, the cards are sturdy, laminated, and very portable!

Bright by Three

Learning doesn’t begin when a child starts school. Amazingly, 85% of a baby’s intellect, personality, and social skills are developed in the first three years of life. But because babies don’t come with operating instructions, all parents need a little guidance on how to make the most of this critical period. That’s where Bright by Three comes in. Bright by Three visits with parents and other caregivers and provides a three-step program to make sure their little ones get the best start at life. And it’s absolutely free for these families, supported entirely by charitable contributions.
