"Brightstar is hands down THE BEST! "
We love Brightstar! Our son attends for after-school care during the school year. While he doesn’t appreciate having to do his reading and homework there after school, we LOVE that the school influences the work to get done! We also love the Summer day camp that the school offers. Each week has a theme with fun activities and off-site field trips planned around each theme! Since moving here in 2015 our son has been to three different competitor daycare facilities. Brightstar is hands down THE BEST! We appreciate all that they do, especially Ms Kirstin!

"Thank you for taking care of and loving our little girl!"
I just want to say how much we appreciate the Summer Camp teachers. On day one of camp, our daughter told my husband “I had so much fun, I almost forgot it was my first day!” We feel so blessed to have a safe, fun, and loving place to send our daughter each day. The other day, I told her – even if I didn’t have to go to work, there’s no way I would have been creative enough to come up with all these amazing activities and field trips! She’s so lucky to have you, and so are we! Thank you for taking care of and loving our little girl! We couldn’t be happier to be back with our Bright Star family for the Summer!
