Bright Start provides a loving and safe Christian environment for children, preparing them for a lifelong love of learning and aiding the transition into kindergarten.

Our goals are to help each child:

  • Learn social skills

  • Share equipment and adult attention

  • Grow in verbal expression

  • Make a smooth transition from home to school

  • Clean up after oneself

  • Improve ability to complete tasks

  • Develop an early appreciation of nature

  • Experience the joy of books

  • Participate in group activities

  • Acquire pre-kindergarten skills (scissor handling, listening skills, pre-reading, turn taking, etc.)
