First Light Early Education Center

Family & Child K Ready

At First Light we value and respect parents as their children’s first teachers.  That is why we teachers to partner with parents in learning everything they can about their child to better care for their needs and plan for their development on their lifelong learning journey.

First Light uses the validated HighScope Preschool Curriculum which is based on more than 50 years of research in early childhood development.  Our framework for understanding and supporting children’s learning from ages 3-5 years is based on 58 key developmental indicators (KDIs), which are aligned with the State of Wyoming Early Learning Guidelines and Foundations.  Each KDI identifies an important learning goal for young children.

Learning is focused on the following eight content areas:

  • Approached to Learning
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Health
  • Language, Literacy, and Communication
  • Mathematics
  • Creative Arts
  • Science and Technology
  • Social Studies

First Light activities are supported by the Wyoming Early Learning Foundations and Guidelines, as well as the Domains of Development, which include:
