Have you ever wondered where children living in shelters go during the day? Where do they learn? Where do they play? Where do they go to feel safe? Bright Beginnings understands the special needs of young children and families living in homeless environments. Our safe, nurturing, developmentally-appropriate childcare for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers helps them reach important childhood milestones, while we help their parents to end their homelessness.
Please note that we will be closed on March 3rd due to the weather.

Another Bright Beginning
My name is Loretta and my 3 year old and 4 year old have been here at Bright Beginnings for 3 years and benefitted from many of the services. My kids and I are better off because there’s a school like Bright Beginnings.
There’s the education program for my children, the therapeutic program that helps the kids deal with being homeless, and the socialworkers that have helped me get on sound footing too. I get upset really easily and they helped me address that.
