Every child deserves the gift of a Brilliant Start!

"Our family has definitely benefited from Brilliant Start in many ways. For us as parents, the most important benefit is being able to go to work knowing that our children are in a safe, loving, fun and caring environment."

All-day Kindergarten!

Does your child miss the cutoff for kindergarten enrollment in your school district? Is your child ready to start kindergarten in the fall? Are you looking for an all-day kindergarten program with small class sizes?

If you answered yes to the questions above, call us to discuss enrolling your child in our all day kindergarten! We have a state licensed kindergarten teacher and small class size for more individualized instruction.

We accept children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. Age-specific, research-based curriculum is implemented in every classroom. We do not differentiate between childcare and preschool. Every child in our center has a rewarding, enriching, nurturing, learning experience in our center.
