We Value Your Kids

Our Philosopy

Brite Beginnings Early Learning & Development Center strives to provide the highest quality childcare that promotes and enhances each child’s development; while assuring our parent’s peace of mind in the care and service we render.

Brite Beginnings provides a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate program which fosters active learning, support for the whole child, and a child friendly environment.

Our philosophy is based on a structured, safe, and nurturing environment. Our values are family, safety, discovery, and play. Every day is planned to encourage each child to experience success, to develop a positive self-image and to help them develop the social, emotional, physical, creative and intellectual aspects of their personality.

What Parents Say

    Happy Father
  • With two children and a full time job I am thankful to have a reliable daycare provider in Brite Beginnings.  Knowing that they are eating well and with people who care for them as their own means the world to me!

  • Love that Brite Beginnings is always working on projects or activities with my daughter.  From challenging her to meet developmental milestones to painting, there is always something fun for her to do!
