Our Philosophy

At Bright Beginnings, we are dedicated to nurturing each child as a unique person encouraging the growth of self-worth, individual creativity, and an understanding of others. Our goal is to enhance a child’s journey through the formative years in a warm, responsive atmosphere of discovery through play. We are committed to providing enriching experiences to strengthen social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Our curriculum which is developmentally appropriate fosters reasoning, experimentation, cooperation, and a love of learning.

Our Day In a Nutshell

Arriving children come to circle time where we do calendar activities, read a story, and discuss our theme for the day. During free play time, children receive instruction at the teacher’s table and enjoy an art activity with the teacher’s aide. After clean up, children participate in sharing time and music/movement activities. We have snack time and end our day with another story before dismissal.

In The Community

Bright Beginnings is proud of our community involvement. We participate in UNICEF, Toys for Tots, United Way Day of Caring, Operation Gratitude, Earth Day cleanup, National Library Week, and are a sponsor of the Annville-Cleona High School Mini-THON, Humane Society of Lebanon County, and The Caring Cupboard. We also make cards for residents at Countryside Christian Community and The Lebanon Valley Home.

Bright Beginnings Preschool was selected as one of Lebanon Valley’s Best of the Best in the Education/Learning Center category for 2021 and 2022 and was voted as the winner of the Education/Learning Center category for 2023!
