Honoring Children Is Our Everyday Practice

We respect each child and know that all children come to us with unique gifts. We embrace these gifts in a multicultural educational environment full of love, nurturing, and security. 

Free Exploration Builds Confidence & Independence

All children make choices as they grow and discover the world around them. Your child develops pride in their achievements and accomplishments and confidence to go along with their growing independence.

Social-Emotional Learning Fosters Character & Respect

During their time at Bright Start, your child thrives socially, emotionally, cognitively, and creatively. They develop social character and good citizenship through learning kindness, manners, and respect for themselves and others. 

Teacher-Guided Lessons Pique Intellectual Curiosity

Teachers use individually planned, developmentally appropriate learning and play experiences to jumpstart your child’s intellectual curiosity. Personalized lesson plans feed their individual interests for a truly unique educational experience.

From Modest Beginnings To Innovative Futures

Bright Start began as a home-based daycare business in 2002, which has flourished into an inclusive and diverse bilingual early care and learning center. We are your child's home away from home. Our early care program serves children from ages 6 weeks to 35 months, and our preschool is a STEAM-integrated (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program serving children ages 3 to 5 years old.

Our Preschool Program is FREE for District of Columbia residents who are 3 years old before September 30, or 5 years after September 30 of the school year. Enrichments boost our academic curriculum and include:

Setting A High Bar For Parent Engagement

As partners in your child’s early care and learning, we communicate through the Preschool2me© app. Teachers share your child’s activities, pictures, videos, and milestones daily and developmental progress quarterly. Parent workshops and social gatherings are also part of our playbook.

In our Preschool Program, we communicate through TeachingStrategies® and parents receive a weekly summary of their child’s work and activities. We share developmental progress every quarter and hold conferences to discuss any questions, achievements, and areas of concern.
