Serving the West Hartford community since 2018.

West Hartford is a wonderful Connecticut town where families are moving to find a vibrant, family oriented community. Recognizing this trend, Bright & Early opened a center, leasing space from the beautiful Beth El Temple on Albany Avenue. Bright & Early renovated over 10,000 sf into a state of the art childcare and early education center, open to all in the community.

About Our West Hartford Center

Children enjoy the over-sized classrooms which exceed CT classroom minimum size requirements, ensuring a spacious environment for teachers and children. Warm, natural light shines into our brightly appointed classrooms through large windows, providing a sunny environment. Each of our infant and toddler classrooms has plenty of space for up to 8 children with two teachers, while our preschool classrooms fit up to 10 children with one teacher or 20 children with two teachers. Our indoor gym, equipped with a large play structure, is perfect for large motor play, especially on rainy or extra-cold days. Outdoors, we have three separate play areas: a toddler playground, a preschool playground, and a grassy area for all children to run around on. All of these areas are secure with safety gates, and the playgrounds are outfitted with nationally acclaimed, age-appropriate equipment and shaded structures to protect children from the sun.

We value your convenience. Parking spaces are close to the entrance for safe, easy drop-off and pick-up. If you need to leave your child’s car seat at the center, there is a designated area for this purpose. We maintain a long-term lease in the Beth El Temple building with a separate entry and exit. We are open to the entire community of West Hartford and surrounding towns.

We value security. A key fob entry system allows access to the center only for enrolled families and staff. There is also a fingerprint check-in system located in the reception area. An extensive camera system monitors every classroom, hall, entrance, and outdoor play area, and its video feed is viewed throughout the day by the director.
