Research shows that children do better in school when parents talk often with teachers and become involved in the school. There are number of ways that parents and teachers can communicate with each other, rather than relying on the scheduled parent-teacher conferences. Close communications between parents and teachers can help the student.Parents who participate in school activities and events will have added opportunities to communicate with teachers. Teachers usually welcome meeting their students' parents early in the school year. Making an effort to do this will help the teacher better understand you, your child, and how you will support the education of your child. Teachers appreciate knowing that parents are concerned and interested in their child's progress. And, this helps open the lines of communication. Parent-teacher conferences are often scheduled at the time of the first report card for the school year.For parents and teachers, this is a chance to talk one-on-one about the student. The parent-teacher conference is a good opportunity to launch a partnership between parent and teacher that will function during the school year. We are open to any suggestions and concerns, to help the teacher better understand you, your child, and how you will support the education of your child. Teachers appreciate knowing that parents are concerned and interested in their child's progress. And, this helps open the lines of communication.

Our goal is to have the best possible program!

What days are we closed throughout the year?

Bright Stars Nursery School strives to meet the needs of working parents. One way we do this is by limiting the number of "holidays" that we are closed to the major ones listed below. Because we are closed fewer holidays (many centers close for more days a year) you essentially receive an additional week of attendance over the course of a year when compared to our competition.

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Presidents Day
  • Good Friday
  • Veterans Day
