Expansion Opening in May 2024!

In 2023, Bright & Early acquired a successful Guilford child care center with roots in the community for 40 years. The long time managers and teachers continue to provide consistency and familiarity for children. The center will stay open as a fresh renovation with many upgrades are completed in the existing classrooms. In addition, the center will also expand to accommodate additional families in the Guilford community, with a grand opening of the exciting new space early 2024.

About Our Guilford Center

After the expansion is complete by early 2024, children will 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. Our indoor gym is perfect for large motor play, especially on rainy or extra-cold days. Outdoors, we have three separate play areas for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. 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 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.
