We absolutely LOVE Bright Stars! The atmosphere is amazing and teachers are even better. Each teacher treats each kid like one of their own. My kiddos look forward going here every day and we have grown close bonds with each teacher. The curriculum is one of the best around and has helped my kiddos in so many ways. I could go on and on about how outstanding this center is.

Amazing childcare center. My stepdaughter attended this daycare and she absolutely loved it. The range of subjects she learnt was outstanding. At 4 years old she could tell me the order of the planets and about volcanoes. She still talks about the daycare now, wishing she could go back! My 8 month old daughter now goes to Bright Stars and I wouldn't trust her with anyone else! The staff are so warm and caring, they feel like family!

Both of my children attend the center and they look forward to being there each day. I appreciate that the teachers are all patient and kind. It makes it that much easier to leave them there knowing my kids are in good hands. They make sure the center is cleaned regularly and are conscious about covid precautions which is something we appreciate greatly. My son especially loves his teachers, friends, and special days like music class

As first-time parents they make us feel so comfortable and safe with leaving our child there. They are always available to answer questions and keep us updated throughout the day with pictures and notes saying how our child is doing (: Not only does our child look forward to going every day but we look forward to seeing the teachers and saying hello as well!

The teachers know all the children by their 1st name and play an active role in their lives. It truly is a family-type atmosphere. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for EXCELLENT child care and the development of their child/children. If I could give more than 5 stars I definitely would. Thank you BRIGHT STARS!
