My daughter switched from another learning center in another town to Bright Beginnings on January 2, 2019 due to us living in Sewell, NJ and wanting her to become friends with the students she will eventually go to school with. The teachers she has had contact with are absolutely wonderful and she has learned more in the last 6 months and is always busy. We get daily updates and pictures and they provide great and healthy snacks for the kids as well. At times, there can be some struggles with organization as a whole but the attention and education my daughter is getting is absolutely the best. I couldn't be happier with the switch we made. I do feel that they take her safety and education very serious and these are the most important qualities to me. I love that they bring in a lot of programming as well such as music class and mindfulness weekly and they offer additional classes such as yoga, soccer, tennis and golf. My daughter is always moving and comes home exhausted which I love! Thank you! *** Updated: June 11, 2019: I originally posted 4 out of 5 stars for some minor issues; the director called me the same day to discuss what they could do better to get 5 out of 5 stars and things have already improved so I'm updating my review to 5 stars for their commitment to excellence! Thank you for caring!

I can’t say enough great things about Bright Beginnings Academy. It was extremely hard to let go and drop Christopher off only 12 weeks after having him, but everyone at this school that I have came in contact with is nothing but exceptional. They LOVE what they do and you can tell by the happiness the children exude. I can’t thank everyone enough for dealing with my endless questions, my consistent phone call check ins, and the love and care you give Christopher while Chris and I can’t be there! Thank you from the Piccone family from the bottom of our hearts, you all are amazing!!

Bright Beginnings has been one of the best decisions we have made in regards to our child. My daughter has been there for 3 years. I feel very safe leaving her in the care of the staff at Bright Beginnings as everyone there is so kind, compassionate and reliable. In addition she is exposed to new opportunities to learn and grow everyday. I highly recommend this daycare.

I was so scared to go to daycare after our experience with the last one especially with our daughter only being 1 year old. I couldn’t be more happy with BBA they are all amazing every teacher the entire staff amazing! It’s like a home away from home we have a 1 year old and a 5 year here and they are excited to go to school everyday. Not to mention I went here 25 years ago and remember loving it just as much back then too! Some of the staff is still the same which tells you a lot about this daycare if the staff likes it enough to work there all these years it must be great!

Our family moved last summer which meant that my son, Bobby, was going to have to go to a new school. We really liked his old day care and hated to leave. I only hoped we would find a school we liked as much. What I didn’t expect was that we would find a school we liked even more! Bright Beginnings has the best teachers and most caring staff. I love the activities that the school plans for the kids and many also involve the families. The entire staff at Bright Beginnings is just so fantastic. We feel so lucky that Bobby has such amazing teachers working with him every day!

I love working at Bright Beginnings Academy. I have had the pleasure of working here for the past 4 years and I can't say enough about staff and families that I encounter everyday. It is so special to see how the children blossom and make new friends.I would highly recommend the school to any parent that is looking for a safe and warm place to nurture their children.

The staff are amazing and the education exceeded my expectations. My son is advanced for his age. I am so thankful for the 3 years he spent there and for every teacher who played a part in him being as successful as a student.

I took my child out of the Malvern School and sent him here. Best decision I ever made. My son cried every day at Malvern and his teacher was rude and nasty. We loved everything about Bright Beginnings. My son didn't cry once while he attended here. We loved each and every one of his teachers. From Miss Jean, Miss Kim, and Mrs. Caione. I only regret that the school didn't have more grade levels. My son is in the fourth grade now and is in the high ability program at his school. I credit his teachers and the wonderful staff he had all his years at BBA. We truly miss this school. I wouldn't send my child anywhere else in the township!

We highly recommend Bright Beginning Academy. My daughter has been in BBA for a little over a year now. She loves being in school. The teachers and the program are amazing. Her communication skill improve so much while she’s there. She always surprised us with her progress each day.read more
My daughter and son are enrolled at BBA in the Pre-K and Toddler 1 classes, respectively. The staff are absolutely wonderful and I feel completely confident my children are receiving the attention and nurture they deserve from dedicated, compassionate, and caring teachers and aides. I love the end of the day daily reports sent home to recap my children's days and the photos of them enjoying themselves during the various daily activities. The communication from the school to parents is excellent, and I am grateful they are in a nice, secure space where I never feel worried about their safety.read more
We have been very happy with Bright Beginnings with all three of our children attending. There is a good mix of learning and fun. We love there are always special events happening too like charity fundraisers, spirit day and week, field trips, class parties, Thanksgiving show, spring show and various other events throughout the year. The staff is awesome and will take the time to listen to your concerns. The playground is great too and also features a large sandbox that the kids love.read more
Kind, caring teachers who whole heartedly care about each and every students individual needs. BBA’s research based curriculum (HighScope) allows for children to learn through play and investigations. My daughter has not only grown academically but also socially, developing and maturing into a well rounded preschooler!read more
Bright Beginnings is amazing!! This is my last year here and will miss everyone! We stared going here 5 years ago with my daughter and she learned so much. The staff is great! My son is finishing up, and he is sooo ready for kindergarten because of the time his teachers gave him with learning. We will miss everyone at BBA!read more
Yes! Both my boys attend and the staff is amazing with them !
Absolutely love the environment and staff! Couldn't have asked for a better place for my son to start school!
BBA is an excellent choice in childcare. The staff are extremely friendly and provide a safe, structured, fun, and educational environment for the children. My daughter has learned so much and has developed so many new skills under the care of BBA. I know as a parent that you are looking for the best childcare for your child... look no further, because this is it.read more
Bright beginnings is a warm and nurturing day care. We’ve been so happy with how much our daughter has learned and how supportive and loving the staff are!read more
I was so worried to start my son at a full time daycare/school, as his grandmother has been providing loving care to him daily since I've been back to work. He has specific things he cannot eat or use on his skin due to allergies, so my concerns were even more compounded. I am a teacher, so I know how hit or miss a place of education can be, depending on the staff and administration. Out of all the places I toured in the somewhat local area (6 different ones) BBA was the most clean (without reeking like bleach), organized, and inviting for parents and students, while being exactly in the middle in terms of pricing. My son had a wonderful introduction to his schooling through BBA, he comes home with new knowledge everyday, and excitement to attend school rather than avoidance. He also has not had an issue with his allergies in the slightest, and I know they make it a priority to ensure he gets his special snacks or whatever is needed that is required. Besides that, I got to sign him up for Soccer and Yoga/Mindfulness, and the lessons he has come home with are amazing (like "to Love means having patience, which means waiting"). I love this school and am so happy I made the choice to send my kid here, wouldn't have changed much of anything for his first year's schooling experience! Thank you BBA Cherry Hill!read more

Our 2 year old son started at Bright Beginnings in April. We were initially nervous to send him to any daycare since he had never been in the care of anyone but family... but the minute we saw Bright Beginnings we knew this was an amazing school! We are so happy with our decision! He has learned so much in the last couple months! We are especially impressed when he comes home and shows us sign language! If you’re thinking about Bright Beginnings, we highly recommend!read more

Bright Beginnings is such a wonderful daycare. I have dropped my daughter off there for the last two years and I always feel completely confident she is in good hands. I love the way all the teachers care for her. My husband and I are always impressed with what she has learned each day. The curriculum is great. We also just started our 3 month old son there knowing he would be well cared for and loved. I can’t say enough good things about it.read more
We have had two children attend since early infant age, and we have always been extremely pleased with Bright Beginnings! We feel so lucky to have our children grow up in such a positive, kind, and energetic community. The staff has been very wonderful. They are the best part, hands-down. Each child has developed strong bonds with at least one or two of the teachers each year, and my kids are always made to feel special and cared for. The facilities are new, bright, as clean as possible, and also it has a great outdoor playground area for the children. I love how the kids get lots of outdoor play time or “gym” time. If I have had any questions or concerns, I’ve always been able to speak to an administrator and teacher through a great conversation, and my concerns or questions are addressed immediately. In the past year, parents get updated pictures and notifications via an app/website, which is a new feature that we love!read more
We just recently enrolled our second child at BBA-Cherry Hill. Our first daughter has been there since she was 15 months old. We absolutely love the veteran staff and the newbies. They really seem to take the time to interview and hire patient, dedicated staff members. We have experienced every classroom at BBA - infants through preschool - and couldn't feel better about bringing my kids there everyday. They've prepared my child very well for kindergarten. She is starting to read and has built really close relationships with friends, and strong, trusting relationships with teachers and staff. We love BBA!read more

We came to Bright Beginnings because we were not happy with the school our son was going to. It was the best decision we ever made! He is in elementary school now but when he comes with me to drop off or pick up his sister every teacher or aide who knew him still says hi to him every time they see him. My daughter loves going there too and loves every staff member she knows. Bright beginnings is the best!!read more
My daughter has been at Bright Beginnings for the past 3+ years. I cannot be more thankful that we found this place.

I feel confident leaving her here each day, knowing that she will have fun, learn and be safe.read more

The directors and teachers are so passionate about the education and the care for the children, anyone would be lucky to bring their children to Bright Beginnings!!!read more
My daughter loves it there! Amazing staff of carrying teachers!
Love this school. We had a hard time finding a place that our son, mommy and daddy liked. As soon as we toured BBA in cherry hill our son said, “see ya mom!” And went to play with the kids on the playground. I registered him right then and there. Can’t wait for his little brother to start in a few years.read more
So many children are benefiting from this wonderful school! God bless you in the coming year!! �

Amazing group of exceptional educators doing wonders for many young learners in our community! Keep up the great work.
Great staff! Enjoy working with these great people. They are all very friendly and work great with the kids.
Based on our previous experience, we knew what we wanted for our daughter when looking for a day care. Bright Beginnings Academy has not only met those expectations but exceeded them. The environment is clean, safe and inviting which gives us peace of mind. The school has a huge outside area for the kids to play as well as an inside gym for when the weather is bad. No matter what, our kids gets plenty of activity during the day which we love. My daughter has been going here for 3 months and now practically jumps out of my arms to get to Miss Maria and her friends in the mornings. The activities she does in class with Miss Maria are age appropriate and engaging. The progress we have seen in her socially and academically in just a couple months has been tremendous. I love seeing pictures of her and her friends interacting with each other and truly enjoying themselves. We also enrolled our 6 year old son into their summer camp in which has been fantastic. Both the summer camp program and daycare setting have weekly themes with tons of activities to keep the kids engaged and having fun while learning. Our son routinely comes home and tells us about the new things he’s learned that week. Importantly, the staff is always greeting you with a friendly smile, makes you feel welcome and all of them know our kids by name. Thank You Bright Beginningsread more
My kids and I absolutely love this place! It is so hard to find a place that the kids not only love but my husband and I do as well. We feel confident every morning that our kids will have a blast and be safe. The staff and teachers are all loving and warm and it shows! They are also amazing with allergies and food sensitivities which was so important to us! I never have to question if the kids will eat something they shouldn't because they question everything and tell me in advance if I need to bring in special treats. Some mornings are a struggle with the kids...but no matter what they never want to leave school! I highly recommend Bright Beginnings!read more
We started taking our daughter at almost 18 months old and this was very hard for me as I had been home with my old two. I felt so comfortable with the staff and Ms. Maria. It quickly became a family to us as I worked 12 hour shifts and my daughter would be picked up by other family members. She stayed all the way to K-4 with Ms. Susan and I couldn't have asked for better family to care for my daughter. Thanks so much Bright Beginings Sewell!!read more
My son spent three years at Bright Beginnings Academy in Cherry Hill and we could not have asked for better results. The teachers were knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive equally to the students and the parents. The curriculum was rich and the extra-curricular activities were enriching. Our son's transition to Kindergarten was so smooth, both academically and emotionally, that his teacher thanked us for sending her such a well prepared student.read more
