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!

Trick-or-Treat Through October!

We are excited to begin our Fall season, full of pumpkins, Halloween, and fun!  It is also fire prevention month, and we are fortunate to have our own personal tour of the fire station. 

              Ms. Jami and Ms. Debbie 


October will feature many fun and interactive stories as we explore pumpkins and gear up for Halloween!  The letters will be “D”, “E” and “F”.  There will be a special focus on fire prevention as we prepare for fire station tour.  Crafts, snacks, and our intriguing sensory tables will coincide with our stories.
