Small Class Sizes

Our ratios are lower than State Requirements.

 It is our small class sizes that enable us to practice our philosophies each and every day!

Children that are a part of a small class, feel secure; giving them confidence to experience and try new things!

Teachers feel relaxed and enjoy having the opportunity to Teach.

Bright Beginnings is dedicated to maintaining our class sizes, as this is where the quality of our program begins.  


Below is a list of criteria which shows how Bright Beginnings students have a distinct advantage, experiencing an academic and social environment that is truly one of a kind.

We strive to keep the overall daily enrollment at approximately 75% of our total capacity, providing our students with a spacious learning environment.
