Bright Beginnings is a parenting program developed by Martha Edwards, Ph., for expectant mothers and parents of infants and toddlers, designed by a series of discussions between parents and activities for group participation intended to promote mental health in their child(ren). It comprises four components: Prenatal Group, Parent-Child Group, Home Visiting, and Video Review.

Environment

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Center was established by two experienced childcare professionals who dream of providing families with a nurturing and collaborative childcare center that offered competitively priced care focused on relationships, mental health, and personalized education from a child psychologist. They desired to provide families with a nurturing, collaborative childcare center that fostered personal connections.

Children have numerous opportunities to express their creative side through art, music, movement, and other hands-on explorations. Additionally, interaction and communication skills development is encouraged using tools such as dramatic play areas, block areas, outdoor play spaces, and table activities shared between other teachers and children.

Food

Bright Beginnings began as a small child daycare home and has expanded into a top-of-the-line school-age child daycare center and preschool. Their classrooms are like little rooms of their own with murals, toys, and resources to help children learn while having fun; the playground is large with shade trees for play; the food served is delicious: water, milk, and healthy snacks like veggie straws, edamame or seaweed instead of sugary drinks like fruit punch or sweetened juice drinks are offered instead; staff is attentive and detail oriented when planning lesson plans for children’s lessons plans!
