Bright Beginnings has a bright, cheerful facility that immediately charms. Clean walls, child art and exuberant bulletin boards greet parents and offer a first impression of happy childhood, full of art, crafts, projects and fun.
Behind the art and cheer, though, is rapid staff turnover with no notice, lack of imaginative playthings and outdoor equipment, lunches featuring bologna and white bread, and a general feeling of children being profit centers more than little humans who need love and care.
Having received several citations from the state for violations of one kind or another, Bright Beginnings is making efforts to improve staff retention and training and create a more instruction-led program. While these efforts are certainly welcome, they may not fix the overall corporate deficiencies.
