An Adventure into Discovery: Exploration and Revelation

Discover an enriching journey for your child's early education at Bright Beginnings Daycare, where our comprehensive academic programs cater to children from one and a half to three years old. Our daycare curriculum is flexible, hands-on, and largely interest-based, drawing inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach. This approach allows children to guide their own learning experiences based on their passions, interests, thoughts, and observations. Our Childcare Program is thoughtfully structured into three distinct classes to meet the evolving needs of each developmental stage.

  • In Tiny Tots, tailored for children aged 18 months to two years, we nurture the budding curiosity and motor skills crucial to toddlers’ formative stage of development.
  • Little Explorers, designed for ages two to two years and six months, encourages childrens’ natural sense of adventure, fostering a love of exploration and discovery. 
  • As children transition to Budding Learners, aged two years six months to three years, we guide them through rapid developmental milestones, nurturing their emerging language abilities and social skills as they blossom into more independent learners.

At Bright Beginnings, we believe in providing a holistic learning environment that extends beyond the classroom. Our daycare facilities offer a myriad of opportunities for exploration and enrichment. From the ACS Multi-Purpose Room, where children develop their gross motor skills through dance and yoga, to the serene Middle School Rabbit Field, perfect for outdoor morning meetings and story sessions, every space is thoughtfully utilized to enhance your child's educational experience. Children at Bright Beginnings also have the privilege of accessing the Lower School Library, a space where they can immerse themselves in print, indulge in reading, and delight in listening to stories. This environment is carefully designed to ignite a passion for literacy, nurturing their love for books and language. Additionally, our little ones frequent the ACS Green Field, an expansive area where they have plenty of space to run, play, and partake in outdoor activities.

In addition to our Childcare Program, we offer an After School Program tailored for children enrolled in the ACS Early Childhood program that ends at 1:30 pm. Running from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm on school days, our After School Program provides a stimulating environment where children can unwind, explore, and engage in various activities such as free play, art, music, story time, and outdoor adventures. This option is particularly beneficial for parents who require flexibility in pick-up times beyond the standard 1:30 pm dismissal schedule.



What Sets ACS Apart?

Child-Centric Indoor Spaces

We carefully craft each area with natural materials and open-ended toys to inspire self-directed exploration and a love of learning from a young age.

Outdoor Program

Children explore nature in our playground in an outdoor oasis, with winding paths, a treehouse, and a sandpit. Walks and scavenger hunts on AUB Campus expand their horizons and instill appreciation for the world.

Process over Product Art

Art is celebrated for its wonder and exploration, as it serves as a means of expression for children. It is a discovery of colors, textures, and space, fostering creative and exploratory experiences that are messy yet exciting.

Sustainable Practices

From eco-friendly materials to hands-on activities like gardening and recycling projects, children develop an understanding of their role as caretakers of the planet.

Dedicated, Experienced Team

Our dedicated team, with many members serving for over 15 years, is the core of our daycare community. Their dedication to children's learning, safety, and well-being builds trust and security for families.
