What Our Teachers Are Saying...
"I can say with 100% confidence that I wouldn’t take my child anywhere else"
I’ve worked in childcare for 7 years. And I can say with complete confidence that Bright Star Academy Schools is the best. In the past I’ve worked for three other facilities and they have all fallen short to what a school should be. Bright Star is the only school/place I’ve worked for that has gone above and beyond in every aspect. This school has everything and much more that a teacher could want/need. They have an onsite nurse, amazing specialty rooms so that you can leave your classroom to teach, a fun splash pad, and the painting/decorating of the school is breathtaking. With that being said, the amount of resources they give the teachers here is ridiculous. If you need paper, craft items, learning materials, science equipment, or anything you can think of that you would need to teach the children, they have it for you. And if they don’t have it then they get it for you. They want to make sure that we can do our job and not worry about how we are going to teach without materials. Also, the other thing us teachers want is to have fun with our coworkers and feel apricated by others. Bright Star makes sure we can have fun with each other by doing fun theme dress days, secret Santa, and even this amazing appreciation board in the breakroom. The board is so we can show our appreciation to each other, but our leadership team does much more than a board for us as well. They ask the teachers what we are wanting, sending shout outs to us, give us random little goodies, and even leave special notes on our cars or paychecks. They know that sometimes it’s just a simple thank you is all we need, and they also go super-duper big for all us teachers during teacher appreciation week. Bright Star also makes sure we are all trained and helps us continue our education to help better ourselves. So, may times I’ve asked myself where I should go for this training or to get this certification and every time Bright Star has an answer for me and helps me to achieve these goals, I set for myself. Finally, though I am a teacher I am also a mother and my son does go to the school. I can say with 100% confidence that I wouldn’t take my child anywhere else because I know that he will be taken care of here at Bright Star!

"Thank you to Bright Star Academy Schools for the wonderful Memories"
My two children Chloe age 10 and Cayden age 5 have been enrolled with Bright Star Academy School since 2011 and Cayden 2013. We absolutely love, love, love Bright Star!!! Chloe started in the Early Preschool Program at age 3 and Graduated Bright Star’s Pre-K Program in 2013. She is now in the 5th grade and loves school. She has been on the A/B Honor Roll for the past 2 years. I thank Bright Star and the WONDERFUL teachers she has had in her early education; they have been sooo sweet and caring helping her when she had difficulties and struggles. She Attends the After-School Program for Holidays and Summer Camp. Our Family lives in Hutto so she goes to a school out there. She is one of the oldest kiddos enrolled in the Camp, but she loves helping her teacher Ms. Caity out with whatever she needs. I have been a teacher at Bright Star Academy School for 7 years, and I ABSOLUTLY Love it. The Leadership Team is Amazing and very well educated (they have all been in the classroom) which is wonderful since they have all walked in my shoes during stressful times and wonderful times. During my 7 years being employed, I have been teaching in different age groups, Administrative Assistant and now where I have found my love Early Preschool. The Owners of Bright Star Academy School are the most caring, wonderful, and well I think of them as family! I can’t say enough wonderful things about this family. The atmosphere here is happy, all the children are laughing and talking about their favorite Specialty rooms. Oh yes, there are multiple rooms the children get to enjoy. There is a Theater Room, Muscle Room, Computer/Library and Art/Science Room that are all available for the children to utilize during their scheduled times. Can’t say enough about this wonderful school/ work place. Cayden was born in 2013, he started his Bright Star journey at 6 weeks old. It was a wonderful feeling to know that my 6-week-old was just down the hall from me. If I needed a baby hug all I had to do was sneak in and get baby kk love. He has had wonderful teachers the journey from Infant to School Age. He is now in Kindergarten and attends the School Age Program with his sister Chloe. Thank you to Bright Star Academy Schools for the wonderful Memories and the top of the line education. I know when my children are in public school, they are ready, because of the Pre-K Program at Bright Star.

"I am so thankful for this school and the opportunities"
I have been at Bright Star for a little over three years now and I can say without a doubt that it has become like a second home to me. Not only are my coworkers fantastic but we also have wonderful families here that make us feel truly appreciated. I love that we can get out of our classroom throughout the day and utilize the specialty rooms, it adds variety to the children’s day as well as mine. I am so thankful for this school and the opportunities I have had since joining the Bright Star Team.

"The facility is always fresh and clean with constant attention to detail"
Hi, my name is Jessica and I have been in the childcare field for 8 year. I started working at Bright Btar at the beginning of 2018, I was not only looking for an awesome job, but the perfect care for my daughter River who was 1 when she started. I toured many schools before picking Bright Star for me and my baby. The facility is always fresh and clean with constant attention to detail. They have a great indoor and outdoor play area which is perfect for rainy or cold days. My daughter has learned so much since starting, her teachers are so loving and caring. Ms. Megan and Ms. Diane helped so much with the tough transition that comes with starting school for the first time. Nurse Terry is the on-site nurse, she is so kind and gentle when attending to sick or injured kids and is always prompt to call and inform parents if anything happens to your child. The principle and assistant principle Ms. Sydney and Ms. Myka are always greeting us with a smile and are always available to attend to any concerns or problems as a parent or as an employee. Ms. Tonya although not usually in the building is ALWAYS available and so flexible with scheduling and personal requests, which is very helpful as a mother. Ms. Stacey is available for any human resource concerns and is always walking around the building listening to teacher concerns and coming up with excellent solutions. We are so glad we found Bright star, I am so excited every day when I pick my daughter up and she is happily playing with her terrific teachers and friends!

" I truly feel confident and comfortable"
I was terrified at the idea of leaving my newborn daughter in the hands of someone else as I returned to my full time position at work. TERRIFIED. Thank goodness I found Bright Star. My daughter has attended Bright Star for the past 2 and a half years and I couldn't be more confident in my decision to have her enrolled in this program. At the young age of 2 and a half, my daughter has not only received lots of love, attention and the utmost quality care, but she is also learning so much! I am constantly amazed by the many new things she is excited to tell me about. Their curriculum not only prepares the 4 and 5 year olds for kindergarten, but it also teaches age appropriate skills and challenges the children all the way down to infant level. Not only has the staff been amazing, but the facilities are welcoming and always offering maximum entertainment and learning opportunities for my girl. I truly feel confident and comfortable leaving my little one in someone else's care on a daily basis, and she is enjoying every second of it (most importantly)!

"the curriculum coordinator is informative you can ask her anything"
My granddaughter as been with bright star since the infant room now she’s in early preschool. Best school on the planet teachers are great not to mention the administration team. Myka is such a great principal, Stephanie one of the best assistant principals, and Stacy is just great- you can ask her anything and I promise if she does not know the answer, she will get it for you. Emily, the curriculum coordinator is informative you can ask her anything about curriculum- she will have an answer ready for you. One of the many things I love about bright star is the curriculum the kids are learning my granddaughter comes home saying her colors in English and Spanish. Thanks to all the great teachers and the best administration team you guys rock.
