Student Information for Registration
Anyone. We accept local and international students on a part-time and full-time basis. You can use BrightKids k-8 program as a complementary source for your study or you can complete BrightKids courses as the main program for completing the Ontario elementary education.
Anytime. At BrightKids, the registration and enrollment are ongoing for K-8 programs. There is no specific start or end date. We do suggest that students begin their studies in early fall (September) or in winter (February). Full-time students have 12 months while part-time students have 6 months to complete their studies.
Part-time students are those who enroll in a course of their choice such as mathematics, language, arts to complement their studies either as a homeschooling student or as a student who is already enrolled at the elementary level in a public or private school. Full-time students are those who will take their entire grade courses at BrightKids as they pursue their Ontario elementary education.
At BrightKids, all e-learning instructors are graduates of the Ontario College of Teachers. They are hired through an extensive interview process and only after submitting a police background check. At BrightKids, e-learning instructors receive continuous training and their performance is monitored by the school principal for quality assurance.
At BrightKids, we accept students from diverse academic backgrounds. If your child is currently being homeschooled or is taking courses at a public or private school, he/she can still take part-time courses at BrightKids to complement their studies. Students can also transition fully to BrightKids program from homeschooling, public and private schools.
For any reason and at any time, should you decide for your child to exit BrightKids program and transition to homeschooling, public or private school, appropriate documentation (upon availability) will be released to you.
No. In Ontario, at the elementary level, credits are not issued. However, upon successful completion of each course (for part-time students) and the program (for full-time students), final report cards will be issued.

In addition, you can have regular correspondence through email communication. If needed, phone conversations will be arranged. Video conferencing will also be made available upon request.
