Over the years, the Bright & Early brand was created, developed, and implemented as a business model that easily competes with the national brands of child care. With over 25 years of experience in the business, an excellent reputation, and detailed systems achieving the highest of standards, Bright & Early is one of the largest privately owned child care center chains in Connecticut. Bright & Early is proud to have cared for and educated 1,000s of children, having set them all on a path to success. The company philosophy captures the spirit of exceptional child care: “Awakening young minds when it matters most.”
In 1997, mother and entrepreneur April Lukasik found herself searching for child care options that suited her needs and the standards she had for her own children. After envisioning the ultimate child care experience, she decided she wanted to realize this vision for herself, so she tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit and founded the first of many Bright & Early Children’s Learning Centers.
Bright & Early is expanding and growing in a thoughtful manner, staying true to the core values that make the company a wonderful place for families to choose as a solution for early care and education for their children, and a fulfilling place to be a teacher. With new Bright & Early locations opening, attention is given to being steadfast to the familiar culture and excellent reputation in the field of early childhood.
