“I LOVE Bright Beginnings! The director, teachers, and staff are always so friendly and attentive. My daughter looks forward to school every day, I just left my first conference with her teacher Ms. Kathy and I could tell how much she cared and is invested in teaching and guiding not only my daughter, but all the children under her wing. She walked me through her progress and even gave me advice on how to more effectively teach her at home. It’s amazing work that they do here, and it often goes underappreciated. I just wanna say you are all exceptional, awesome women! Thank you SO much!
“I love this area and the daycare and staff is amazing I love it here! It’s always clean and the providers work so well with my daughter!”

“Very good pre school and day care. They really take care of the child well.”
