TOP 15 REASONS WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

Parent Praise

"Our daughters loved the art and special classes like dance and computer. As they grew they learned Spanish, sign language, learned to count and read and write. We love all the amazing things my girls learned at Bright Beginnings Academy!

Why Bright Beginnings Academy Sewell and Cherry Hill, NJ are different
  1. ALL LEAD TEACHERS ARE DEGREED

We are dedicated to giving your child a great academic head start.

That’s why all our teachers degreed and all our teacher’s assistants have or are currently pursuing a CDA (Child Development Associate Credential). 

While State Licensing requires 20 hours of additional training and 10 hours for assistants/staff, all members of our team members nearly double the required training hours to ensure we are the best. 

  1. ONE OF THE FIRST TO BE PART OF GROW NJ KIDS INITIATIVE

It’s our mission to prove the best, quality education and childcare services in the South Jersey community. We are excited to be part of the first group of schools transitioning to be a part of the Grow NJ Kids.

GNJK is a state-sponsored initiative designed to raise the quality of childcare and early learning throughout New Jersey. Learn more about Grow NJ Kids Here. 

  1. WE TEACH CALM BREATHING AND STRESS RELIEF TOOLS 

We believe strong academics are not enough to raise happy, successful and resilient children. Children also need to learn how to manage stress, difficult emotions and feel confident

That’s why our Kindergarten class is introduced to our weekly Mindful Beginnings Program that infuses calm breathing and peaceful pauses throughout their day.

All our teachers are currently participating in additional mindfulness and yoga for classroom training. When both the teachers and students feel calm, it creates a more positive classroom environment. 

  1. WE OFFER DAILY HEALTHY SNACKS

We love to teach our kids the importance of healthy eating. That’s why during every meal, your child is offered a variety of fruit and veggies to keep them strong and healthy.
