We had a very bad experience at this daycare center, and as a result, we had to take the drastic step of changing our child's preschool in middle of the school year. The incident that brought this about happened when I pointed out that the preschool s homepage listed some information that was incorrect. Rather than apologizing for the mistake, a staff treated me in an incredibly disrespectful way. The staff s attitude was totally unacceptable, so we requested a meeting with the supervisors of the staff. The meeting was shocking. They had decided to believe what the staff said even though it was obvious that I had no reason to make up a story to cause trouble at my child s school. When we disputed what the staff had said, we even were yelled at. They strongly encouraged us to leave the school. Our expectations of our children's preschool are not too high. In fact, we had been happy about each of the four preschools our children experienced before Bright Beginnings. We expect our children's teachers and school administrators to be honest and know to respect others. Unfortunately, this school does not even meet such minimal expectations.
Works fine for my pre-schooler, who we will keep enrolled through the rest of the school year. However, their school-age program has been a big failure for my 1st-grader. When I pick him up, the classroom appears to be chaos... Loud, children running everywhere. The lead teacher is young, quiet, and she and the young teachers seem to spend a lot of time socializing. My boy has only one time ever done any homework during their homework time... These young teachers do not seem to have control of this classroom. And bullying has been a repeated problem in the room, as has disrespectful behavior to teachers, vulgar language... Really, obviously these teachers do not have control of the classroom and it is a very poor environment for the kids.
I've had three children attend Bright Beginnings from toddler through after school. The staff is exceptional and treats every child as an individual - taking care of their needs and challenging them when needed! The hands-on learning is one of a kind with focus on everything from academics, social/emotional, Spanish, Sign Language, Community Service and more. The students and parents always seem happy and content!
My pre-K daughter is learning things her 1st grade brother is now covering at St. Lukes (which is on par / ahead of public schools). My 1st grade son is beyond 2nd grade math when he ended kindergarten at BB and was helped greatly in his less-than-peers-in-BB but ahead-in-1st-grade reading. (It s tempting to have him skip a grade but he s already the youngest.) Student-Teacher ratio was 8 to 1, and effectively better. The two kindergarten teachers each taught the two 8-kid groups their specialties and were well supported by the rest of the staff. The best part is that each child is individually challenged teachers focus on teaching each one not trying to maintain control of +20 kids each (like elsewhere).
