Bright Beginnings Learning Center

Bright Beginnings Learning Center, or BBLC, is a Christian Mother’s Day Out/Pre-School program for children 18 months through five years old.  There are options for different age levels, which are offered Monday through Thursday, 9:30 am – 2:30 pm.

Our children have a variety of experiences throughout their day: Chapel time with singing and a message about God’s love, playground time, Gym Bugs, Music Bugs, learning centers, and free play.

Our staff strives to show God’s love through their love, interaction, and concern for each child who has been entrusted in their care.  Children in our program feel comfortable, protected, and loved.  We look forward to welcoming you into our BBLC family!

All documentation must be completed and in your child’s folder prior to the first day of school.

All children attending BBLC are required to be vaccinated. We must have the “Well Child Statement” and “Immunization records” prior to your child’s first day of school. If your child is on an “Alternative Immunization Schedule,” we will need to have the physician’s signature and documentation of said schedule.

We are looking forward to another wonderful year of experiences with your children!
