Top 10 Reasons Why We Are Different

"Our daughter Clara is loving yoga, art and playing with her many new friends! Most importantly for us, Clara is steadily learning to write her name, and is able to recognize many letters and numbers. She feels very grown up going to school, as well she should. We are all delighted with her progress!"-Lucy Horsefield

7.) Rest Easy...We Have Secure Buildings

  • Your child’s safety is our first priority. Upon enrolling your child, you will receive a key card and that will allow you to enter our building. Those without key cards will have to ring our doorbell and have a Director identify you. You will also be asked to pick a 4-digit pin to sign your child in and out daily after entering the building. We strongly encourage our parents not to “piggy back” with one and other while entering our schools. While its second nature to want hold the door for a fellow parent with their hands full, it is best to swipe your key card individually, so we will have a record of who specifically enters our building at all times. If you know you are going to have your hands full during drop off, please don’t hesitate to call ahead to ask your site director for a hand- we are more than happy to meet you outside!

Field Trips

We also use our nature trails to gather science and art project materials- or just to get outside and be in the fresh air! We try to capture all of the senses at Bright Beginnings…and lets face it- kids love to be outside!
