Bright Beginnings Learning Center

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

Our children have a variety of experiences during the day: Chapel time with singing and a message about God’s love; playground time; Gym Bugs, Science, and 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!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide creative learning experiences to stimulate our children socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and physically in a loving Christian environment.

Bright Beginnings Learning Center, BBLC, operates under the auspices of Strawbridge United Methodist Church, and we are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.


Registration for the 2019-2020 school year begins on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, for both our Strawbridge UMC members and currently enrolled BBLC families.  Registration begins at 9:45 a.m. in the Strawbridge Activity Center.

Registration opens to the community on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 9:45 a.m. in the Strawbridge Activity Center (SAC).

We offer a “Mother’s Day Out” program for children twenty (20) months through three years, and a Preschool program for three, four, and five-year-olds.  We have a transitional program for children who may have missed the kindergarten cut-off or would benefit from an additional year of preschool.

Registration forms can be found at the bottom of this page after February 15.  Please complete forms, print them, and bring them with you when you register.

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

Please bring a copy of your driver’s license and insurance card to complete your child’s file.  (If you do not have access to a copier, we will copy these as part of the registration process.)

We look forward to welcoming your child into our program.

In His peace and love,

Mary Jo Neidinger
