What Parents are Saying

Choosing a school and/or childcare can be such a daunting decision. I am so thankful to Ann and all of her staff for being exactly what my child has needed to kick start her school years. The staff is great with communication, organization, and add photos to Facebook daily of what the kids are up to! So much fun! We are so blessed to have Ann’s Bright Beginnings – I would recommend them to anyone!

– Amber Gochenour

Their preschool program is full of daily activities to keep children engaged and on the road to success, both socially and academically. Before my daughter was quite shy in social situations, and now she is so outgoing! I love seeing how happy she is to see her friends and teachers. We highly recommend Ann's Bright Beginnings to anyone seeking quality daycare or preschool!

– Kim Gamble

My son went to Ann’s from age three to nine and became the straight-A student he is today during that time. He learned so much while attending Ann's as well as from their participation in community activities. Without a doubt, I tell anyone looking for daycare or preschool about Ann’s! They were not only teachers; they became part of our family.

– Ashly Athy

We looked at many daycare options and were so grateful to find Ann’s Bright Beginnings. Ann and her team give children the respect and compassion they deserve. We appreciate their focus on parent communication, and the individual needs of each child in their care. They are what childcare should be, in my humble opinion. Thanks, Ann's Bright Beginnings!

– Gretchen Clark

Not only are the staff extraordinary educators, but they truly care and love every child as if they were family. In 2014 I was diagnosed with cancer - scary words for an adult, much less a 3 and 5 year old. When Ann’s staff learned of my diagnosis, they provided extra support to the boys and ensured they had an outlet to express their feelings. They were… are our village. During kindergarten testing, I was told they could tell my boys went to Ann’s because those students are always well beyond prepared for kindergarten. To this day when we drive past Ann’s Bright Beginnings, my boys reminisce of the village that sparked their love of learning.
