We have been with Bright Start Early Care and Preschool for almost 5 years and have loved the experience for both of our children. Our oldest started at Bright Start when she was 6 months old, and will be "graduating" from the Preschool program next week, and our youngest has been at Bright Start for almost 2 years since he was an infant as well. We knew that Bright Start was a friendly and welcoming environment from the moment we toured it with Ms. Veronica Wright, and it has continued to be that friendly home-away-from-home for our children ever since. While we have loved the education our two children have received while at Bright Start and we know they will be more-than prepared for their next school, what we have loved most about Bright Start is the care and love each and every teacher has bestowed on our children. Our children have LOVED their teachers to the extent that some of the first names they pronounced were their teachers' names! We have appreciated all that the teachers do to share their compassion and love for their profession and the children in their classes, including thorough daily reports and conferences, high fives and hugs when we leave each day, and even little gifts at the holidays. When we've had challenges, we knew we could rely on the teachers to both help reinforce learning at school as well as give us advice and guidance on what to do at home. We have also really appreciated the in-house food service as it has not only helped alleviate a task we have to take care of at home, but, more importantly, it has introduced and made a norm for our children a wide-variety of food options, from different beans and grains, to tofu and every fruit and vegetable you could imagine! Our kids are not picky eaters and are usually always willing to try something new, all thanks to healthy routines and relationships to food being established every day at Bright Start. Being at Bright Start has really been our "village" for the last five years in raising our two kids and we are sad to be leaving the area and leaving this community, and we could not recommend this school enough!
