About the business
I offer structured activities and believe that structure is important in a child's day, I think a balance must be struck in which the child also has large blocks of time in which to explore activities, toys and materials in his or her own way. Children need time to create elaborate imaginative play scenarios together, ideally with a wide variety of toys and materials. Elaborate make believe play scenarios require a high degree of cooperation, communication, negotiation and more. Children get to exercise critical social skills. I think even the most astute adult sometimes mistakes play for wasted time. I want my children to PLAY.
I value individuality and strive to convey to my children that they are appreciated just as they are; then I hope to teach them to view one another in the same light.
I strive to allow children the space in which to learn to think outside of the box, as opposed to regurgitating information that may have little or no meaning for them. Messes are part of the process. Knowing that, I offer a mud kitchen, a giant sandbox, and a water wall.
Using a wide array of open ended toys, I offer the children a plethora of activities, loving the concept of a 'tapestry of experiences'. The materials provided include play silks, giant wooden blocks, magna-blocks, a light table with special illuminating materials, a sensory table, a science table, science experiments, play dough, great art projects and more.
The environment is designed to stimulate the senses and get creative juices flowing.

Ratings & Reviews
Our girls love going to school. They have blossomed under her guidance and the differences in their social interaction and improved scholastic ability was immediate.
Ms. Brigetta is detail oriented and continuously outlines the day to day while providing instant updates and snapshots of the day through the Cluster app. She gives updates consistently with pictures and is immediately available to answer questions or concerns or to just discuss our children's general well-being. Everything is planned out in great detail in advance from meals to activities, to projects and holidays, to complete silliness. In this past year we have learned to trust her with the care of our little girls implicitly.
As we had never sent our kids to daycare, we were hesitant to use a daycare or preschool, but I truly think it was fate that led us to Ms.
Brigetta. She is kind, compassionate, and truly cares for our kids and wants them to be the best little people they can be. This is not to say she is a pushover or wishy washy. She is fair and teaches values and respect. My kids have been better behaved and often talk about their days with Ms. Brigetta and the other children. You get directly from them the reality that they are being nurtured and cared for, as
well as being taught kindness, sharing, and values that will set them apart when they move on to
elementary school and higher. She has been the next best thing to being home and in many ways her preschool gives them experiences they would not get at home. The girls are getting the necessary interaction with other children in a very small class size and they love going.
We are extremely satisfied and cannot recommend Ms. Brigetta enough. She has been a bright spot in both our and our children's lives this past year and she will always be family to us. Thank you Brigetta for all you do and with the love and kindness in which you do it.
Brigetta is so bright, intentional, creative, communicative, and deeply invested in knowing my girls - AND in partnering with my husband and I to sharpen them in these formative years! She has such a wealth of knowledge in child development that we are regularly picking her brain on parenting! I trust her beat on things implicitly.
Her philosophy is play-based, imaginative learning with thoughtfully planned curriculum that keeps the kids engaged and curious. She is so emotionally intelligent and deeply dialed in to the big feelings of her little people. She's successfully cultivated an environment where kids can feel safe and sweet friendships blossom.
As an artist herself, Brigetta is always dreaming up new and different ways to make the curriculum come alive through painting, drawing, building, experiencing, etc. She takes so much pride in her incredible homemade menus, the organization of her space, and the thoughtful addition of new "toys" - most recently an outdoor "mud kitchen" which my daughters won't stop talking about! She delights in bringing the kids joy and that makes me adore her all the more.
As if all of that wasn't enough...I've also been blown away by how personally communicative she is with my husband and I - whether it's processing new behaviors she's picked up on, updating us on a new favorite book, or sending videos of giggling moments, she is personal, invested, and so thoughtful. I work in a corporate setting with very little time to disconnect during the day and have historically wrestled with such regret on moments missed, but Brigetta makes me feel like I'm there watching it all unfold.
If she has a spot available (which isn't often because she's very discerning about the group dynamic and little friendships!!!!) you should close the deal immediately! Your child will be in the VERY best hands. My bar is exceptionally high and she has my highest recommendation.
Brigetta makes sure any behavior issues are taken care of right away, is very open with her communication, and as also in tune with each child's abilities, feelings and needs.
Her energy is AMAZING. Londyn has learned SO much from her and the other children. I don't know what we would do without her, it's great place for my daughter to start her schooling experience. She's so welcoming and has a safe environment. My daughter loves being there.
We decided to try the opposite, the Creative Nurturing Preschool under the supervision of Ms. Brigetta. At our first meeting before our daughter even started we could tell there was something different, we just didn't realize how much was different. From the first day our daughter would come home happy and eager to share stories of her adventures and lessons.
The communication is leaps and bounds ahead of the other facility with updates via an app, personal communication at drop off/pick up and via text when necessary keep us informed and engaged. We not only hear what's going to be taught and why, but how we can reinforce it as well as what she's going to eat. Again one upping her predecessors we get pictures of her meals (let me say sometimes I'm jealous!) and all the meals are well balanced and prepared.
Games, toys and educational materials are plentiful and there are constant updates. Ms. Brigetta is not only passionate in caring for our child but for making sure her development needs are addressed and nurtured. More often than not our daughter will come home and randomly spout off words of wisdom or knowledge she has gained which makes my wife and I so happy to hear.
I cannot stress enough the confidence and admiration we have for Ms. Brigetta, she truly loves her children as if they were her own.
Brigetta goes above and beyond in every aspect of care. The meals are all fresh, homemade, and nutritious. She engages them in regular yoga and creative movement. She is very in tune with the needs/wants of the children and keeps the environment fresh and exciting. She sends pictures and videos all day long sharing their activities, books they are reading, songs they are singing and topics they are discussing. I love being able to fully engage my child on what her day was like. I also cannot even count how many creative and unique art projects we have brought home.
My child has grown so much in the year that she has been with Ms. Brigetta. I am constantly impressed with her vocabulary, knowledge of numbers, shapes, colors, songs and understanding of concepts that I can truly only credit Ms. Brigetta for.
The benefit of being in the environment that Ms. Brigetta provides is immeasurable and unending.
I have seen children who couldn't talk using full sentences within weeks of being cared for my Ms. Brigetta. She has a HUGE heart and is very warm and welcoming to ALL the children. The curriculum she provides makes the kids ENJOY learning, even begging for more!
My daughter is excited to go to school everyday. She has NEVER told me she didn't want to go on any given day. She will continue here until she starts kindergarten in fall of 2019. My younger daughter will also start here in the beginning on 2019 and I am very excited about it.
We would recommend this daycare to anyone who is looking for a creative learning experience for their child.
My daughter is learning to read which I did not expect her to do before kindergarten. She loves the books and dress up materials and I am happy that she is making such nice new friends.
The projects that she brings home have the whole family admiring them and she is so proud! It's such a nice experience all the way around.
My daughter loves Ma. B and talks about her all the time. I can tell that she gets very positive attention from Ms. B.
We are so happy with our experience and recommend this daycare!
I am so grateful that we found Brigetta. It's so nice to go to work and not worry because I know we can trust that he is nurtured and cared for. She communicates well with the parents. Just an overall blessing and I highly recommend her program.
We have never had any safety concerns and Brigetta is remarkably diligent about always keeping us informed as to what is going on with our child. We have not had any concerns about our child not being closely monitored or safe at all times while in her care and sincerely appreciate this as it unfortunately seems to be a hard thing to come by. We have a great deal of respect for and trust in Brigetta.
One of the many things that we, as parents, so treasure about this program is how connected with the children Brigetta is. Not just our son but every child in her care. It's amazing how much the children love her and it's abundantly clear how much she loves and truly cares for each child. Our son loves each day he is in her care and typically greets Brigetta with an excited squeal or "YAY!" and a big hug each morning. He loves Brigetta and the other children in her program.
Unlike many other childcare providers, Brigetta considers not only the child's current development and needs but those of the future. This is no "one size fits all" program. She is very thoughtful and always looking at the children as individuals and from a holistic perspective; considering their current state and needs while always thinking forward about ways to encourage and foster their development in the future. In addition, she has been an invaluable resource to us in better understanding our son and finding ways to navigate the typical struggles that parents experience when raising young children. She is an endless source of knowledge and always expanding her knowledge through research and training. She shares this information with the parents and provides educational resources to the parents regularly.
We are constantly amazed at how much thought, energy and care she puts into things. This includes but is not limited to the projects they work on, the materials they use, the educational techniques she uses to teach them and the time and effort she puts forth to ensure the children are consistently entertained, challenged and happy. She is always adding and expanding to ensure a unique and novel experience for the children which we feel contributes to the incredible advances many of the children have made while in her care. Brigetta sets no limitations for the children as many schools or care centers would and works one on one with each child so the children truly set the pace in regards to their development and progress.
We couldn't be more happy about having our son in her care. He will remain in her care until he is too old to continue and at that point, we will be very sad as we know that Brigetta and the environment and love she provides for these children is truly one of a kind.
Both of my children showed a marked increase in self control and maturity after a few months in Brigetta's care. She relates to the children in a way that is nuanced and far deeper than they experienced in the more expensive chain daycare that we tried.
I never worried for one minute when my girls were in Brigetta's care. I cannot say that about any other daycares or even public school. With Brigetta, I felt my girls were with someone who took the time to get to know them, really KNOW them. She cares about the children in her care and goes so far beyond what you can reasonably expect.
I feel blessed to have had my children in her care, truly blessed and grateful. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
But it was only after kindergarten started that I really realized how much she had learned with Ms B. She was so far ahead of her class that her teacher expressed astonishment to me about how much she already knew. She was reading and her math skills were so much more advanced that even I had realized.
I love Ms B and her preschool. I feel like my daughter got to go to a private preschool, which I definitely couldn't afford.
I hope to have another baby in the near future and when that baby is old enough, I wouldn't have my child anywhere else.
What is impossible is to literally have eyes on every child every minute of the day. This is the same anywhere you go. It is not possible.
This child fell and hit her nose on the floor. This happened right in front of me at a time when I did literally have my eyes on her. While carrying a 'big block', she dropped it then tripped over it. There was nothing that I could have done to stop it, it was too fast.
I never want a mother to leave my care unhappy. In this situation, due to communication issues, I requested that the mother look for another daycare. Professional decorum calls for me to give 2 week notice.
Because I care for the families who come here beyond the parameters of the daycare relationship, I agreed to give her plenty of time to find affordable care. I was very surprised to learn that she intended to remain for a MINIMUM of three months, but I was willing to work that.
The waiver did not absolve me of ANY responsibilities or liabilities. It simply stated that she acknowledged being informed that I could not meet her expectation of literally keeping my eyes on her daughter every minute that she was in care. This mother does not know what the waiver said, as communication broke down before she even read it.
In 20 years I have never had a child seriously injured because the children are very closely supervised by myself and my helper. My kids learn to behave in ways that minimize the potential for injury. The environment is designed to minimize risk of injury.
I spend a great deal of time and energy working on social skills and kindness. The environment reflects this in the ways the children relate to one another. This environment is not chaotic. The children are not allowed to run wild. Still, with children, minor bumps and bruises sometimes happen, in the course of play, without any malicious intent. Even so, I have children who have been here years without even those normal minor injuries.
It is unfortunate that this situation ended as it did. I wish only the best for this little family. It disappoints me greatly that this young mother did not have the experience that I wanted for her. I do know that her daughter was very happy here, and for that reason I am so sad that this situation occurred.
I really love how easy it is to send my payment as well. If you bank with Chase, Bridgetta will send a QuickPay notification for the amount due and you just hit 'send.' SO much easier than the hassle we had at our previous daycare where she would hold the check for a week and a half!
I also love how well she senses what her students need. One day, they may all have extra energy and need to run and play! The next, they may be ready to get back to the typical structure of crafts, numbers, reading lessons, and yoga (My daughter LOVES yoga!).
If you are lucky enough to find Bridgetta when she has an opening, you better jump on it!!
The name really says it all. This is truly a creative and nurturing environment in which children are welcomed, accepted, encouraged and loved. Each child receives individual attention to work on developmentally appropriate activities and it is obvious that a great deal of care and thought each project and activity.
In addition, parents are always kept up to date on their child's progress, activities and developments. Brigetta cares deeply for these children and is focused on developing them socially and emotionally, in addition to intellectually.
Creative Nurturing In-Home Preschool is unlike any other childcare program and we are so incredibly thankful to have found it! We couldn't be happier!
She has created a perfect learning environment, but also understands the importance of playtime and independence.
Very highly recommended :)
Communication is a priority for me and Brigetta is great about replying to questions quickly and thoroughly and has never once gotten defensive when I've asked a critical question. She encourages creativity and uses positive discipline methods which fit very well with our style at home. When you speak with her, it becomes very clear how much she cares about the children in her care and how devoted she is to providing a great education and loving environment for them.
I can't recommend this school enough.
After doing the dreaded childcare hunt, which included the typical over priced corporate daycare facilities, I stumbled upon Brigetta's ad. Brigetta is very warm and inviting; my son liked her from the first day they met. Although my son had a rough start due to the provider change, he has finally adjusted and settled into his new, fun school! Brigetta worked with both my son and I on how to cultivate their relationship and make the transition as easy as possible. She was very understanding about the situation, and took into account his personality. All kids are different, Brigetta recognizes each students individuality and upholds an environment that is positive, creative, and full of love.
She is excellent about keeping me informed about his daily activities (we get weekly schedules). She teaches them curriculum which is great for my son as he is always excited to learn. Her home is always clean and tidy, and she prepares healthy meals for the students.
My son is always amped to show me his new projects and tell me about the new stuff he learns each day. I am thankful for her care and how affordable it is in comparison to other providers, especially the company owned facilities which are astronomical! My son is happy, I am happy, and things get easier every day. :)
K went through a phase where she was bullying another child. Brigetta worked with us and was extremely patient in helping me get K through this difficult phase. My daughter's emotional growth during her time with Brigetta was phenomenal - she learned so much about caring for and sharing with others that I know will be invaluable to her throughout life.
She truly cares for the children and spends one on one time with each and every child. Her pre-school is so learning based it is not your standard daycare but a true school based environment. It combined everything we were looking for - the structure of a school but the comfort of a home environment.
I would highly recommend Brigetta to everyone I know. I just can't put into words what she has done for my child - he is so engaged in learning and I know it is all because of her! He couldn't be in a better position for kindergarten and for that I am truly thankful.
Brigetta is highly recommended in my book. I went through 5 daycares in less than a year before I found her!
