Books are the foundation of learning. at Bright Buttons books and story time are very important for language development, which is why we have extensive library.

School Concert
We put on an amazing school concert every year, which is eagerly anticipated by the children. Every child gets to participate and sing and dance in numerous songs. This allows the child to show their talent in singing, dancing, speaking and acting. However, more importantly it allows an opportunity for the shy child to be gently encouraged to come out of his or her shell. There is a part for each child, and this is usually the annual highlight for the children.
