  • My Bright Day,

    the whole day in your hands!

    Your child’s day is filled with big moments—and we don’t want you to miss even one. That is exactly the reason why we offer the My Bright Day App for families.

    A parent using the app is able to:
    • Access and submit morning drop-off information form a mobile device
    • Receive real time updates on their child throughout the day
    • Preview the Mobile Daily Experiences sheet via email
    • Save and collect a child’s memories (pictures, videos, notes and reports) all in one place
    Connect with our administration team for more information on how we use (and love!) the app at our center.

    Well Aware and Staying Healthy

    Our center environment offers children a healthy and safe place to develop and learn.
