Nurturing Love and Security
We Are Your Partner In Your Child’s “Childhood School Memories."
We started as a home base 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. Bright Start Early Care and Preschool is an accredited program by the National Accreditation Commission (NAC).
Our early care program serves children from ages six (6) weeks to thirty-five (35) months, and our Preschool is a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) integrated which serves children ages three (3) years to (5) years. Our Preschool is FREE for District of Columbia residents who are three years old before September 30, or 5 years after September 30 of the school year.
As part of our curriculum, we incorporate music and yoga performed by community artists and drama with the Wolf Trap resident. During summer, which starts from the last week of June to the first week of August, we host a French Camp for ages 3 to 8 years.
As partners in your child’s early care and learning, we communicate through ‘Life Cubby’ which we share the daily activities of your child. Developmental progress is also shared quarterly. Parent workshops and social gatherings are also part of our family engagement.
In our Preschool Program, we communicate through Teaching Strategies, and parents receive a weekly summary of their child’s work and activities. Developmental progress is also shared every quarter, and conferences are hosted to discuss areas of concern.

As partners in your child’s education and care, we are committed to ensuring their love of learning will flourish to our vibrant, multi-cultural environment.
