The children experience a wide range of developmentally appropriate socialization and learning opportunities while being nurtured in a safe and loving environment. The infant/toddler rooms require a 3 full day minimum, with flexible weekly scheduling and reasonable/competitive rates.

This program has the same preschool enrichment as our 3-hour preschool program, but with an extended day of care. The day includes social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language development activities as well as morning/after snack, lunch and rest time. Each class is taught by an experienced, educated team consisting of a lead teacher and qualified staff.

    Therapy Dog Information

    Brighton has a therapy dog in each of its 9 schools. At Tot Spot, we have Henry as our therapy dog. Henry is an Australian Shepherd who just turned 1 in August of 2019. Henry is named after Brighton High School Senior Class Principal Henry Vecchioni, who retired at the end of August, after 28 years in the district. Henry Vecchioni has dedicated his life to Brighton Schools making a huge impact on staff and students. We are so lucky to have Henry as part of our Brighton Area School family! He spends most his days in different classrooms, but spends his break in the office relaxing and taking as many pets as he can get!
