Welcome to Bright Starts!

We believe that early childhood experiences can positively impact a child’s entire school career. Learning the social skills necessary to interact in a group promotes cooperation, as well as learning empathy and respect for others. Self awareness skills help children recognize their strengths and weaknesses, encourage creativity and problem solving, and develop stamina. Children play and through this play they learn new strategies and skills. It is these strategies and skills that are the foundation for their future learning. As teachers we create the environment that allows children to play creatively and investigate their world safely and with purpose.


 Children in our care will have a structured yet flexible day that includes educational hands-on activities, outdoor playtime, circle time and free play. Our goal is to combine the worlds of center-based daycare  with the warmth and compassion of a home like setting. 


We are approved by the state of New York to provide early intervention services for  children birth to 3 yrs. of age.  Addistionally, we are approved by the state of New York to provide itinerant based special educaion services to preschool aged students.
Bright Starts participates in a statewide quality rating and improvement system for child care programs called Quality Stars New York.  This program supports program development, staff training, and purchasing of materials for those that participate.  Quality Stars has a set of standards based on best practice in early childhood, covering categories of Learning Environment; Family Engagement; Staff Qualifications and Experience; and Leadership and Management.

Bright Starts of CNY submitted data for each area and an independent observer assessed our classrooms. Bright Starts received three out of five stars.
