About Bright Child:
Deer Valley USD Gifted Services is pleased to continue to offer our full day, self-contained gifted kindergarten programs for the 2017-18 school year. Our Bright Child Kindergarten, offered at Canyon Springs & Highland Lakes Schools is expanding to Norterra Canyon School this year! Bright CHild Kindergarten is taught by an experienced, Highly Qualified, and Gifted Endorsed teacher. The program has all of our standard Deer Valley curriculum as well as supplemental gifted and advanced materials, STEM content integration (at Canyon Springs), as well as weekly Spanish language enrichment (at Canyon Springs), all in a smaller than average class size.
The program is designed for children who have already completed a year of preschool or prekindergarten and who are functioning well above their similar age peers. Although not part of the Renaissance Highly Gifted Academies, it is our goal that the Bright Child Kindergarten program be an excellent foundation for students looking to apply for the Renaissance program in first grade or continue on into first grade functioning at a high academic level.
