Bright Start of Colorado

Preschool and Childcare


At Bright Start, our staff is dedicated to helping your child build the best foundation for their future. We focus on pre-academics as well as the social and physical growth of every child. We believe that children should be nurtured and supported in their early childhood educational experience so they may obtain confidence and pride outside the home. Using Developmentally Appropriate Practices we meet each child at their current level and help build their foundation from there. We practice positive modeling, encouraging reinforcement, and consistent classroom rules. Parents are an integral part of the learning process, and we will work as a team to meet the needs of your children. We look forward to learning with you, because great futures begin with a Bright Start!

How Can My Child Sign Up?

Children may attend Bright Start Preschool after their 3rd birthday, up to age 6. Every child must be toilet trained, however, certain conditions may be considered. No child will be denied admission because of gender, race, heritage, religious affiliation, or disabilities. A completed application and current immunization record must be submitted to Bright Start Preschool prior to enrollment. Children will be enrolled on a space available basis, but can be placed on our waiting list for future openings.
