A Bit About Us

    The Bright Steps Academy was founded in 2021 by Maral Natalie Kalayci to provide students with a unique educational experience that is truly a "cut above", helping children prepare for what the future holds in today's modern era and keeping up with the ever-changing standards of education.

    The Academy Strives to educate our students through a S.T.E.A.M and Play based curriculum. Our Goal and Philosophy is to prepare them Mentally, Emotionally, and Physically to successfully enter kindergarten and beyond by exposing them to various modalities of learning. Our Mission is to enhance their social skills, fine & gross motor skills, creative expression, literacy, math and science skills - all while having fun in a devoted and nurturing environment. 

What works




    A S.T.E.A.M based curriculum which is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, is not only fun for our students but in addition, represents the creative thought process that explores curiosity, fosters imagination, creativity and reflections through a problem-based learning approach.

    A Play based curriculum also sometimes referred to as a 'child-centered' curriculum benefits a child in developing their communication literacy, emotional and social development.

    Both curriculums combined, engages children to apply all their learning senses for success.
