Your Child’s Early-Learning Home With Exceptional Care In A Family Atmosphere
Experience an environment where every child feels included. Teachers greet kids and families by name and treat everyone like family, building bonds that extend beyond the classroom and school hours.
Cultural Diversity & Inclusivity Promote Compassion, Understanding, & Equality
Early exposure to all kinds of diversity grows kindness and understanding. Witnessing friends of all races and nationalities playing together is a beautiful thing, and through celebrating others your child learns to embrace their own differences.
Children are exposed to different cultures and backgrounds through activities such as:
Trilingual Early Care Fosters Learning In English, Spanish, & French
Learning more than 1 language boosts brain development and is a real-life skill best started young. Your child receives interactive, age-appropriate French enrichment classes twice a week and learns Spanish every day, building fluency in 3 languages.
Child-Directed Learning With Expert, Loving Guidance
Whether it’s a few quiet moments of independent reading or creating a fun block tower with friends, your child happily explores their own interests. This fluid, exploratory, child-led learning style is less disruptive and boosts your child’s natural curiosity.
Other benefits of giving children the freedom to explore with gentle teacher guidance include:
Engaging Curiosity For Future School Success
School readiness is about more than skill mastery. Without curiosity there’s no need for inquiry and discovery. Even the youngest infants in the Pooh Nursery have time each day to learn through exploration, building interests and learning organically.
Fun & Creative Enrichments Included in Tuition

Hear What Parents Have To Say . . .
“My daughter Celine started to attend Bright Start in the infant room when she was almost 6 months old. The care she received was top notch. I went to work every day feeling like she was safe and secure, well-cared for, and well fed. She’s now in the toddler room, thriving under the care of a wonderful set of new teachers.”
