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!

Thankful for November!

We are excited to begin our season of thanks. It is fun to learn what the kids are thankful for, and see how they show appreciation. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you all how truly thankful we are that you have your children here with us! They are a delight!

Ms. Jami, Ms. Debbie and Ms. Debbie

This November, we will focus on our “Thankful” things. We will talk about things that make us thankful and what that means. We will work together to create a special Thanksgiving Feast will be a special part of our holiday season. Turkeys and other holiday crafts will decorate the room. The letters will be J, K, and L. In math, we will focus shapes and patterns.
