What parents say about Bright Child Learning Center

Misses School on Days Off

I say my daughter is happy at Bright Child and always wants to come and play with her friends. She misses school on vacations and talks highly of her teachers.

Parent, Preschool Classroom

Comes home happy & tired

It’s a nurturing environment where children are treated with respect and given room to grow. Our daughter comes home happy from her day and tired from all the play.

Switched Back

We switched to another daycare and almost immediately regretted our decision. The staff and the quality of care simply did not compare to BCLC. We are happy to return. We know that our son is happy, appreciated, and well cared for each day.

Learning so much & having fun!

Bright Child is one of the best decisions we’ve made for our children! It’s so hard to not be with our kids all day, but it helps knowing they’re learning so much and having so much fun. They’ve developed their own routines and friendships outside of us, and as a parent, that’s so cool to see. The teachers have been incredibly helpful and encouraging and I love how everyone on staff always knows our kids’ names. I can’t say enough good things!

Fostering education, exploration & creativity.

BCLC is somewhere that I feel like my children are safe and the staff are very trustworthy and educated. They take childcare and make it a learning experience. I don’t feel like they are just a glorified babysitter; they take education, exploration, and creativity very seriously, regardless of how young the children are.

Parent, Toddler & Preschool Classrooms

Learned more than we imagined!

From the time our son was three months old he has been attending BCLC. He has learned more at daycare than we could have ever imagined. We would highly recommend this school!

Parent, Preschool classroom

Independent, respectful and patient.

I’m amazed at how my child has grown and developed while attending BCLC. He’s learned to be independent, respectful and patient. We couldn’t be happier with the teachers and staff that teach him each day.

Variety of opportunities for learning!

We have had a phenomenal experience with BCLC. my kids are in love with everything about it…the teachers, the independent learning and variety of opportunities for learning, and the other kids and I am, too! I can’t imagine having a better, more caring environment than at BCLC.

Parent, Toddler & Preschool classrooms

Wonderful, caring staff.

It’s a great center with a wonderful, caring staff. Our child has learned so much from being there, and he really loves both the place and the people!

Parent, Preschool classroom

Seamless transition from home to here.

We’ve had a wonderful experience at BCLC. Leaving your child in someone else’s care can be hard, but at BCLC the transition could not have gone better for us.  This seamless transition is a testament to the great teachers and staff at BCLC.  They’ve succeeded at creating a supportive learning environment for our child and we couldn’t be happier with our daycare choice.

Parent, Infant classroom

Comes home happy and tired.

BCLC provides opportunities for independent growth, tailoring instruction to help children achieve their milestones and foster new skills. Our daughter has flourished as they have supported her love of reading. She comes home happy and tired from a full day of work and play with her friends.

The Complete Package

For us, Bright Child has been “the complete package” wonderful, thoughtful and generous teachers, a beautiful building with room for the kids to explore and grow and constant attention to what our kids need at every stage while looking ahead to what’s next. We feel so fortunate to have found Bright Child!

Parent, Preschool classroom

Mindful about choices

BCLC is mindful about choices and really focuses on child development and independence.

Parent, Toddler & Preschool Classrooms

Calm and Comforting Environment

We toured several daycare options, and BCLC immediately stood out because the atmosphere was calm and comforting. So many daycares are perfectly competent but feel like constant chaos–which isn’t too surprising, with a bunch of young children running around. The fact that BCLC manages to avoid this is very impressive and speaks volume about their dedication to the child’s positive experience.
