Say Hi to the
Pooh Nursery Class!

Our classroom is designed for movement, exploration and discovery in a safe, comfortable environment that resembles home. Natural lighting, thoughtfully displayed materials and age-appropriate soft toys invite curiosity while promoting a calm ambiance.

Daily Storytime, Music Time, Tummy Time, and More

We lovingly guide your baby through an engaging daily schedule, while respecting their rhythm for eating and sleeping. Fun activities for your baby include story time, music time, gross motor activities (tummy time, crawling, standing, etc.), and enjoying the outdoors in a buggy ride, weather permitting.

Expertly Supporting You and Your Sweet Little One

“I had a hard time getting my son to nap when on maternity leave unless I was holding him or wearing him in a carrier.  It’s been great that they not only got him on a regular nap routine, they got him to nap with others. They’ve got some baby whisperers.”

Incredibly Caring, Patient and Hardworking Teachers

Our high-quality staff develop a loving relationship with your baby, by comforting them and helping them to learn and grow. They talk to your child, hold them, cuddle and coo to them, all day long. it is our pleasure to lovingly give your baby the warmth and nurturance they need.

Calm Environment with
Plenty of Room for Play

Your little one needs a quiet, serene atmosphere for sleep, so designated sleep areas are kept quiet for them. The play area makes fun accessible to your baby, where soft toys can be found on the floor, where your baby can gravitate towards them.

Lots of Play at
This Early Age

You baby will be thrilled to play with dolls, blocks, pots and pans, just like the bigger kids but softer, for infant use. Climbers and bouncers are available so that your child can practice kicking, reaching and stretching, with lots of smiles and giggles.

what our parents have to say

"It is a super warm, loving environment"
Our son attends and loves it. It is a super warm, loving environment. They feed them very healthy food (included in tuition)--different from many other daycares where you either have to provide food or they feed unhealthy stuff like chicken nuggets.
- Elizabeth T.
"The staff is incredibly caring, patient and hardworking"
This is the best daycare I could ever dream of for my beautiful daughters. The staff is incredibly caring, patient and hardworking- they are perfect role models for my darling daughters! The facilities are extremely clean and overall are amazing. The food is organic!! I would recommend this Daycare to anyone!

"I could not have asked for better to care for our child."
Our daughter has attended Bright Start since she was 4 months old. (She is now 3). I cannot say enough about the caring, nurturing teachers. I could not have asked for better to care for our child. As she has gotten older, it has been wonderful to see how much she is also learning at daycare (and how much she enjoys learning!).

"We're so appreciative that Bright Start was instrumental in helping our son thrive"
We had a fantastic experience with Bright Start overall. Our son, Rogan, attended from 3 months until 18 months. He was treated as their own, he loved all the teachers (even if the other class teachers, everyone knew him) and friends. He would learn so many new things. We also love the diapers and wipes the school provided, and most importantly the healthy and nutritious meals provided each day. No other daycares and schools provide that and we loved it! Unfortunately we had to move, which is the only reason we sadly said goodbye to all the wonderful teachers and friends. We truly had an amazing experience here, and so appreciative that Bright Start was instrumental in helping our son thrive. Thank you for everything!

"My son has really blossomed at Bright Start and I’m so glad we found them."
My family loves Bright Start. We’ve been there since 2009 and have gotten care for all three of my children. The teachers are all so caring, friendly and truly enjoy working with the kids. My son has really blossomed at Bright Start and I’m so glad we found them. Marcia is so on top of everything and has grown the daycare center into an amazing place.
